Blessed is the King who Comes - Ishmael

This is a catchy praise song, which is particularly appropriate for Palm Sunday but can be used throughout the year. The words are based on Luke 19:38.

It was written by English worship leader and songwriter - Pentecostal-trained, charismatic church leader and later ordained Church of England deacon - Ian Smale who is better known as Ishmael or Deacon Ish (ref).

The song was first recorded in 1993, and is managed by Smale's company, Glorie Music.
