The Silly, Young King

Let me tell you the story,

Of a silly young king,

Who wanted to have


He wanted a circus,

With a tent made of silk,

And a castle of candy,

With a moat of chocolate milk.

He wanted a spaceship,

To take him to Mars,

And a million and one,

Big candy bars

He wanted the world’s seas

With harbors and boats,

He wanted to own the mountains,

And billions of goats.

He wanted to fly,

As high as the sky,

And he wanted to eat,

The world’s biggest pie.

He wanted one each

Of every kind of car,

And He wanted to name,

Each and every star.

He wanted three elephants,

To dance in his room,

And a jet plane,

That would take off with a zoom.

He wanted fireworks,

To explode every night,

And trumpets to play,

At dawn with the light.

He got all he wanted,

A trillion and one things,

But none of it can compare,

To the joy that Jesus brings.


Someone who is content realizes that true joy doesn’t come from what you own or wear. When you’ve given your life to Jesus and are walking with Him, He’ll always take care of you—you’ll never lack for what He desires to give you and the life you’ll find in Him is beyond anything you could have ever imagined. The Bible says in Matthew 6:33, “But seek first God’s Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well.” Remember: Only Jesus satisfies and true joy comes only from Christ.
