Baby Son

I discovered John Mark McMillan a couple of years ago and I have been thoroughly impressed ever since. He is a Christian artist who is not like most Christian artists. To be honest, I am not impressed with a lot of Christian music. I think much of it is shallow and not good musically. John Mark McMillan is one of the exceptions. He is an excellent songwriter that often writes challenging and moving lyrics. I truly believe he would make it in the music industry regardless if he did Christian music or not. His latest single, Baby Son, is now available for free on NoiseTrade. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Baby Son

By John Mark McMillan

We thought you’d come with a crown of gold

A string of pearls and a cashmere robe

We thought you’d clinch an iron fist

And rain like fire on the politics

But without a sword, no armored guard

But common born in mother’s arms

The government now rests upon

The shoulders of this baby son

Have you no room inside your heart

The inn is full, the out is dark

Upon profane shines sacred sun

Not ashamed to be one of us

Without a sword, no armored guard

But common born in mother’s arms

The government now rests upon

The shoulders of this baby son

Gloria, Allelu

Christ the Lord

We’ve longed for you
