Behind the Hymn: All Hail King Jesus
Dave Moody was preparing for the worship service he was to lead that evening in 1977. He sat down at the piano and began to worship God.
A song came to him, and as he played the melody and words seemed to flow out of him.
That evening he felt led to sing this song at the worship service. People began to bow their head in worship all across the church as he sang the song.
The praise hymn spread and became popularity through singing at various conferences and churches. Often the song is performed with another popular song from the same era, Majesty.
When Integrity Hosanna! Released their first album, All Hail King Jesus was the title recording. Even today the song reminds us of the glory and praise of Jesus Christ.
