Song Echoes Prayer by Teresa of Avila

Audio Adrenaline - published on 07/07/16

"Kings & Queens"

If not us, who will be like Jesus to the least of these?

Boys become kings, girls will be queensThey will be brave and free when we love the least of these,” goes the chorus of “Kings & Queens” by Audio Adrenaline.

The song is about the transforming power of Christ. But the song reminds us that we are called to be Christ to those in need. If not us, who will be like Jesus to the least of these?

The lyrics are an echo of the prayer of Teresa of Avila:

“Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world. Yours are the hands, yours are the feet, yours are the eyes, you are his body. Christ has no body now on earth but yours.”

The song “Kings & Queens,” from the album of the same name, was filmed in Jacmel, Haiti highlighting the beautiful children at the Hands & Feet Project Children’s Village and raising awareness about the orphans there. “This song embodies the principal truth that God has for every orphan, including the orphans in Haiti, that the potential for them in God is unlimited,” says former Audio Adrenaline member Will McGinniss. “They are heirs to a great Kingdom someday, His sons and daughters now.”
