Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

98. The Child of a 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.

Chorus:
I'm the child of a king, the child of a King,
With Jesus my Saviour, I'm the child of a King.

2 My Father's own Son, the Saviour of men!
Once wandered o'er earth as the poorest of them;
But now he is reigning, forever on high,
And will give me a home in heaven by and by.
[Chorus]

3 I once was an out-cast 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]

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 the child of a King.
[Chorus]
