468 - A Child of the King

My Father is rich in houses and lands,
He holdeth the wealth of the world in His hands!
Of rubies and diamonds, of silver and gold,
His coffers are full, He has riches untold.


I’m a child of the King,

A child of the King:

With Jesus my Savior,

I’m a child of the King.

My Father’s own Son, the Savior
of men,
Once wandered on earth as the poorest of them;
But now He is pleading for sinners
on high,
And will give me a home when He comes by and by.

I once was an outcast stranger on earth,
A sinner by choice, an alien by birth!
But I’ve been adopted, my name’s written down,
An heir to a mansion, a robe and a crown.

A tent or a cottage, why should I care?
They’re building a palace for me over there!
Though exiled from home, yet still may I sing:
“All glory to God, I’m a child of
the King.”
