King of Kings Majesty - Cooper

This is a worship song about Jesus glory.

It was written by Welch-born, English Pentecostal musician, singer-songwriter and worship-leader, Jarrod Cooper (b 1970).   It was written in 1996, inspired by an encounter with the glory God's which he had while flying to South Africa (ref), and released the same year by Sovereign Lifestyle Music
It has been published in recent editions of many major UK & Ireland hymn books, including:
  • Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd, London, 2013
  • Anglican Hymns Old and New, Kevin Mayhew Ltd, Great Britian, 2008
  • Complete Mission Praise, Marshall Pickering, London, 1999
  • Singing the Faith, Hymns Ancient & Modern for the Methodist Church, London, 2011
  • The Irish Presbyterian Hymnbook, Canterbury Press, Norwich, 2004
These books are the best way to get sheet music for the song, as it does not appear to have been released separately.

It is set to an unnamed tune, also by Cooper. This has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of G, the first few notes of the melody are D A,B, A,B, B,_ GF E E A, B,B, C with accompanying chords G / D / G / C / D.

Lyrics

The lyrics are copyright so cannot be reproduced here. But they are currently available on this website. A rough outline is:
1.  King of kings, majesty, God of Heaven living in me ...

Chorus.
Your majesty, I can but bow,
I lay my all before you now.
In royal robes I don’t deserve
I live to serve your majesty.

2.  Earth and Heaven worship you, love eternal, faithful and true ...

KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY 1.  King of kings, majesty,
God of Heaven living in me,
gentle Saviour, closest friend,
strong deliverer, beginning and end,
all within me falls at your throne.

Chorus.
Your majesty, I can but bow,
I lay my all before you now.
In royal robes I don’t deserve
I live to serve your majesty.

2.  Earth and Heaven worship you,
love eternal, faithful and true,
who bought the nations, ransomed souls,
brought this sinner near to your throne;
all within me cries out in praise.
