1 I’m a child of the King,
Who is mightier far
Than the kings of this world,
In their palaces are;
I’m a child of the King;
What a wonderful thing!
I’m a child of the King.

Refrain:
I’m a child of the King!
What a wonderful thing!
I’m a child of the heavenly King!
Oh His love I’ll ever sing,
And I’ll make His praises ring!
I’m a child of the King.

2 I’m a child of the King,
Who has conquered the grave,
I’m a child of the King,
Who is mighty to save!
I’m a child of the King,
What a wonderful thing!
I’m a child of the King. [Refrain]

3 I’m a child of the King;
And His majesty own!
I’m a child of the King,
And an heir to the throne!
I’m a child of the King,
What a wonderful thing!
I’m a child of the King. [Refrain]
