"All the King's Horns" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
One mother rises, pulling the sheets from the grill
All the disguises, wandering stars once she did
All the king's horns, all the kings men, saddled and [Incomprehensible] raise the dead
Only an infant, He came to raise up the dead

Wandering wise men what did you bring to his bed
Shameless surprises, incense to bring to the dead
Nothing is wrong, it's what she did, all the king's horns and kings men
Nothing is wrong, it's what she did, all the king's horns and kings men

Nothing is wrong, it's what she did, all the king's horns raise the dead
Nothing is wrong, it's what she did, all the king's horns

    General Commentthese are the lyrics. its not an instrumental.



    One mother rises
    pulling the sheets from the crib
    all the disguises
    wandering stars, what she did
    all the kings horns, all the kings horns
    saddled and worn
    raise the dead
    holy and infant
    he came to raise up the dead

    wandering wisemen
    what did you bring to his bed
    shapeless surprises
    incense to bring to the dead
    nothing is wrong, it's what she did
    all the kings horns and kings men
    nothing is wrong its what she did
    all the kings horns and kings men

    nothing is wrong its what she did
    all the kings horns raise the dead
    nothing is wrong its what she did
    all the kings horns

    General Commentis this about revelations in the bible?

    General CommentOdd maybe, but Jesus did come to fulfill the law... And he will raise the dead when he returns. So the birth of Christ is also a celebration his return to call us home.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorites. A beautiful song and a reminder that Christmas is the beginning of a journey that takes us to Jesus' death and ends in Jesus' resurrection.

    General Commenti believe the first part is about this...

    also here is an explanation of the symbolic meaning of the gifts the 3 wise men brought
