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.

52. A Christian Is a King

1 I have a stately palace,
On yonder hill it stands;
Eternal in the heavens,
A home not made by hands.
A pedigree most noble,
Unto the world I bring,
I trace it back to Jesus,
A Christian is a king.

A Christian is a king!
With joyful heart I’ll sing;
In God’s own sight forever,
A Christian is a king.

2 I own a robe of whiteness,
Of Christ’s pure righteousness;
A retinue of angels
Attend my way to bless.
On earth there’s care and sorrow,
But still my heart will sing,
I’ll trust my loving Father,
A Christian is a king. [Refrain]

3 A crown have I in glory,
Laid up for me alway,
Within the treasure chamber,
For coronation day,
My name’s engraved upon it,
And heaven’s host will sing,
When I go home to wear it;
A Christian is a king. [Refrain]
