My thirst for the things of this earth
Isn't quenched by diamonds or pearls
One Man lived the life that I want
Hes the One they said ruled the world
Though He only wore a crown of thorns
And He never owned a thing
Chorus
I want to live like a King
I want to live like a King
And my decree it will ring
"Love will rule everything"
I want to live like a King
This King did the strangest of things
He befriended the sick and the poor
There was no one too wrong, too right, too black, too white for Him to
Love
He built no walls, left no unopened doors
Well, now I could croon a million other tunes
There is just one I want to sing
Chorus
I want to be stronger, I want to be wiser
I just want to make every move be the one he'd want to see from me
There's just such power, such healing power
In every word that He said, in every deed that He did
Chorus
