A Soldier's King



No one seemed
To notice
The man
Beside the road
He was just
A ragged soldier
Out there
In the cold
But he seemed
To have a purpose
Only known to him
As he walked
Along the streets
That night
Through the town
Of Bethlehem

In his head
He held a memory
Of all the wars
He'd known
In his hand
He clutched
A medal
For the bravery
He'd shown
And the weight
Of every battle
He caried
In his heart
But his eyes
Were clear
And searching
For a manger
In the dark

Chorus:
Some are born
To greatness
Some are born
To fall
Some are bound
To be forgotten
Like they never
Lived at all
But
We're all born
To know Him
And stand
Before His light
Like the soldier
Who found
His king tonight

He had marched
For politicians
Served under
Their command
And he fought
For all
The causes
That he did
Not understand
But it was
Something deep
Inside him
Now that led him
On his way
With a single star
To guide him
To where
The baby lay

Chorus:
Some are born
To greatness
Some are born
To fall
Some are bound
To be forgotten
Like they never
Lived at all
But we're all born
To know Him
And stand before
His light
Like the soldier
Who found
His king tonight

He stood before
The Son of God
Come to pay
Our debt
He smiled up
At the soldier
That the world
Eould soon forget
So he held out
His medal
And said this
For you I bring
There he swore
Aligiance
To the newborn
Baby King

Chorus:
Some are born
To greatness
Some are born
To fall
Some are bound
To be forgotten
Like they never
Lived at all
But we're all born
To know Him
And stand
Before His light
Like the soldier
Who found
His king tonight
