A Child of the King  Misc. Gospel

[E]My Father is rich in houses and lands,
He [B]holdeth the wealth of the world in His [E]hands!
Of rubies and diamonds, of [A]silver and gold,
His [E]coffers are full, He has [B7]riches un[E]told.


Chorus
[E]I’m a child of the King,

A child of the King:

With Jesus my Savior,
[A]I’m a [B7]child of the [E]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 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

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
