A CHILD OF THE KING

I’M A CHILD OF THE KING

I am a very wealthy person.

My father has all that I could ever need or want
and He wrote me a letter and
told me that if I ever need anything
to just ask Him and He will provide it for me

He did say that this offer was only
available so long as I am an obedient child.

I was born into the family and He has
always been there for me
helping me to grow into a child that
He would be proud of.

He is the light of my life and
I would never ask anything of Him
that would not please Him or that
would be a waste of money,
because even though He is rich,
He wants His money used wisely.

I believe what He said and I will give Him
my requests and let Him sort out
what He thinks I need.
After all, He is building me a mansion
for when I move home and
I don’t want to interfere with that.


A Child of the King

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.

Refrain:
I’m a child of the King,
A child of the King:
With Jesus my Savior,
I’m a child of the King.

My Father’s own Son, the Savior of men,
Once wandered on earth as the poorest of them;
But now He is pleading our pardon on high,
That we may be His, when He comes by and by.

I once was an outcast 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.


A tent or a cottage, why should I care?
They’re building a palace for me over there;
Though exiled from home, yet still may I sing:
All glory to God, I’m a child of the King.




For every beast of the forest is mine, 
and the cattle upon a thousand hills. 
Psalm 50:10



  O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! 
how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! 
Romans 11:33

  3. Ah, what a delightful hymn, my friend. This song is extra special to me as it was the second hymn that I learned when I was learning piano. I play it for the offering at my church and I still remember how nervous I was so many years ago. Thank you for sharing the precious words to this song.

    May you have a blessed weekend, dear one. Love and hugs!

  4. Awe... A Child of the King, that I am and I praise the Lord daily for the gift of my Salvation. That is one of my favorite hymns because of the words, so meaningful.

    As I read my dear Stephanie's message I had to chuckle as I remember that day when she so nervously played this hymn for offering. Now she plays with ease and confidence so beautifully. I remember sitting on her bed for hours listening to those very first songs from the beginners book and cheering her on to play more for her mama to hear. Her piano was in her bedroom which I believe made her practice all the more because it was right there at her fingertips. Beautiful memories for sure.

    Thank you for always sharing the beauty of the Lord with us, dear Mehrll.

    Have a blessed weekend in all it's glory~~
