SONG OF THE MONTH: Humble King
Words & Music by Charl Folscher (Every Nation, South Africa)
© 2017 Charl Folscher
"I had a desire to write a song that was squarely aimed at God. A song that was filled with worship expression toward God without including us in the mix. What I mean with that is I wanted to have it devoid of expressions of what he did for us and write about who he is—his glory, majesty, power, and holiness without ‘Jesus saved my soul and he loves me so.’ There is, of course, nothing wrong with those expressions of gratitude about how he impacts our lives, but for this song I moved that aside. In the end the line, still You are the humble King, crept into the song which contrasts God's sovereignty with his chosen path of meekness. Now, of course, that hints at what he did for us. Go figure. I hope you guys enjoy." - Charl Folscher

ABOUT THE HUMBLE KING EP:
The five songs on this EP follow a journey into God's sovereignty, holiness, power, and humility. It contrasts our mere humanity against his greatness, and also contrasts God's sovereignty with his own chosen path of meekness. We journey to a place of surrender, asking God for his mercy and grace to be overflowing toward us while moving us to faith and the ability to believe that his promises are true.
