1. 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.
I'm a child of the King, A child of the King;
With Jesus my Savior, I'm a child of the King.
2. My Father's own Son, the Savior of men, once wandered on earth with the poorest of them;
but now He is pleading our pardon on high that we may be His when He comes by and by.
3. I once was an outcast stranger on earth, a sinner by choice and an alien by birth;
but I've been adopted, my name's written down, an heir to a mansion, a robe and a crown.
