A child of the King

Representative Text

1 Softly and tenderly Jesus spake
Unto my fainting soul:
Come, of the waters of life partake,
And thou shalt be cleansed, made whole!

Refrain:
All glory to Jesus! So precious is He!
His name! in my soul how it rings!
Redeemed by His blood, He has called me to be
A child of the King of king!

2 Guilty was I whom He sought to win;
Trembling I heard His voice;
Fully persuaded, I entered in,
And made Him that day my choice! [Refrain]

3 Sins that were crimson He made as wool,
Gave me a glad new song;
Now of salvation my cup runs full,
I’m happy the whole day long! [Refrain]

4 Of Him to others where e’er I go,
Daily my glad heart sings;
I am for time and eternity,
A child of the King of kings! [Refrain]
