Child of the King

I am thankful to be a child of the King of Kings

I find my place of safety and refuge underneath His wings

The God of Israel is my beloved friend

This is an eternal friendship that will never end


The LORD Jesus is powerful and He is on my side

The Holy Spirit dwells in me and is my faithful guide

The LORD only has my best interests at heart

He remains faithful, so we shall never be apart


The LORD makes me courageous and ever so strong

It's to Him, that I belong!

He makes my paths straight before me as I trust in Him

He has washed me in His blood and cleansed me from my sin!


His forgiveness is amazing, His mercy it is sure

To every situation, Jesus is the cure!

He guards my heart with purity, His burden is so light

In the LORD Jesus Christ, I take all my delight!


He is my beloved, the strength of my soul

He fights for my freedom and makes me whole

He pleads my case and rights my wrongs

He fills me with His glory songs


The LORD never leaves me, for He is devoted

In the Lamb's Book of Life, there my name is noted

Purchased by the blood, the gift of grace

Soon I shall meet my Saviour face to face!


The LORD is good and merciful and He is just

It is in His name that I put my trust

While there is breath in my lungs, I will serve the LORD Jesus Christ

For He is the Way, the Truth and the Life


Nothing can compare to the LORD's great glory

He is mighty, He is strong and He is holy

Great are His works, I will remember all that He has done

He will finish what He started; He will complete what He has begun


The LORD does not give up on anyone

The Spirit and the Bride say, "Come!"

Heaven is eternal and is not too far away

Jesus will take me there and keep me safe I pray


Life can be so good when you put Jesus first

Because I believe in Him, I shall never thirst

I shall not hunger for Jesus is the bread of life

I place my faith in His sacrifice


There is no greater love, there is no greater joy

All of the devil's works He shall destroy

He preserves my soul and watches over me

He delivers and sets my spirit free!
