Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

574. A Child of the King

1 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.

Refrain:
I'm 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 on 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. [Refrain]

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's written down -
An heir to a mansion, a robe and a crown. [Refrain]

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!" [Refrain]
