Hymns of My Youth III: A Child of the King


The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.

—Romans Romans 8:16–17

210 A Child of the King

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

Refrain:
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 our pardon on high,
That we may be His when He comes by and by.
Refrain

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.
Refrain

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