Representative Text

1 Heir of a mighty King, heir to a throne,
Why art thou wandering sad and alone?
Heir to the love of God, heir to his grace,
Rise to the privilege, claiming thy place.

Heirs! we are joint-heirs with Jesus our Lord!
Heirs of the covenant, found in his word!
Rise to thy privilege, heir to his grace!
Heir to the love of God, Rise, claim thy place.

2 Heir of a Conqueror, why dost thou fear?
Foes cannot trouble thee when he is near;
Child of the promises, be not oppressed,
Claim what belongs to thee, find sweetest rest. [Refrain]

3 Heir of the King of kings, never repine,
Talk not of poverty, riches are thine;
Heir of the Holy One, canst thou not see
Treasures unbounded are waiting for thee. [Refrain]

4 Heir by inheritance! child of thy God!
Right to thy sonship is found in his word;
Walk with the noble ones, never alone;
Prince of the Royal Blood come to thy throne. [Refrain]
