We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

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]
