Click to listen to the music of Child Of The King and sing along!

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.

Chorus:
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.

Chorus:
I'm a child of the King
A child of the King
With Jesus my Savior
I'm a child of the King.

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.

Chorus:
I'm a child of the King
A child of the King
With Jesus my Savior
I'm a child of the King.

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.

Chorus:
I'm a child of the King
A child of the King
With Jesus my Savior
I'm a child of the King.

The Gospel song, "A Child Of The King" was written by Harriet Buell in 1877 and the music was composed by John Sumner.
