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

Iím a child of the King,
A child of the King:
With Jesus my Savior,
Iím a child of the King.

My Fatherís 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.

Refrain

I once was an outcast stranger on earth,
A sinner by choice, an alien by birth,
But Iíve been adopted, my nameís written down,
An heir to a mansion, a robe and a crown.

Refrain

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

Refrain


Story:

Harriett Buell wrote the words for A Child of the King one Sunday morning while walking home from her Methodist church service. She sent her text to the Northern Christian Advocate, and it was printed in the February 1, 1877 issue.

Romans 8:16-17 Ö we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with ChristÖ

Whether you are great or small in God's kingdom, you are still God's child. An infant is as truly a child of its parents as is a full‑grown person. You are beloved by God.


Bible Verses

Romans 8:17 - And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together
