#279: A Child of the King

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

My Father is rich in houses and lands,

He holdeth the wealth of the wold in His hands!

Of rubies and diamonds, of silver and gold,

His coffers are full — He has riches untold.

CHORUS

I’mm a child of the King,

A child of the King!

With Jesus, my Savior,

I’m a child of the King!

2

My Father’s own Son, the Savior of men,

Once wandered o’er earth as the poorest of them;

But now He is reigning forever on high,

And will give me a home in heav’n by and by.

CHORUS

3

I once was an outcast stranger on earth,

A sinner by choice and an alien by birth;

But I’ve been adopted, my name’ written down —

An heir to a mansion, a robe, and a crown.

CHORUS

4

A tent or a cottage, why should I care?

They’re building a palace for me over there!

Tho exiled from home, yet still I may sing:

All glory to God, I’m a child of the King!

CHORUS
