How Can I Keep from Singing: You Are My King (Amazing Love)

It’s a song that’s been done by several great recording artists:  Newsboys, Hillsong United, Chris Tomlin, and Phillips, Craig, & Dean.

When you come across a great song like “You Are My King (Amazing Love),” it’s easy to see why everyone wants to do their own version of it.  That’s what’s so great about Christian music.  An artist may be known for writing or recording a song first, but one of the greatest compliments to a Christian songwriter is that many artists want to record it.   The fact that a song speaks to so many individuals and allows so many people to worship through a certain song is something that is almost exclusive to Christian music.

Let’s face it, “Firework” is signature Katy Perry.  “Unchained Melody” is The Righteous Brothers straight up and down.  “Love Me Tender” will always be an Elvis classic.  Songs like “You Are My King (Amazing Love)” are so inspiring that anyone can make them their own.  Songs such as these are just classic praise and worship.

Out of all the versions from which I could choose, I chose the one by Newsboys because I heard them do it first.  It’s their version that first brought me to tears.  It’s their version that made me visualize the great sacrifice of Jesus and how what He did for me allows me to be royalty, for the spilling of His blood makes me His child.

 This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.  John 3:16-18 (The Message)
