Skeeter Davis – Child Of The King lyrics

Once I was clothed in the rags of my sin
Wretched and poor lost and lonely within
But with wonderous compassion the King of all Kings
In pity and love took me under his wing.

Oh yes, oh yes, I'm a child of the King
His royal blood now flows in my veins
And I who was wretched and poor now can sing
Praise God Praise God I'm a child of the King.

--- Instrumental ---

Now I'm a child with a heavenly home
My holy father has made me his own
And I am cleansed by his blood and I'm clothed in his love
And someday I'll sing with the angels above.

Oh yes, oh yes, I'm a child of the King
His royal blood now flows in my veins
And I who was wretched and poor now can sing
Praise God Praise God I'm a child of the King...

    I've had this song go through my spirit for 2 days. I was saved when I was 10 filled with the Holy Spirit and I know for a fact that it was His love for me that kept me alive all those years. I praise God that I am truly a child of THE KING.

    Oh yes! That simply means that one day some 50 years ago, I had the Gospel of Jesus Christ presented to me as a gift from God and I accepted him by faith as my personal savior. And my life has not been the same since. And if you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your savior, you must while you are still alive. After you die, it will be too late. Oh, I'm not perfect, far from it, but the blood shed when Jesus died on that cruel cross over 2000 years ago, washed away every sin I ever committed and he can do the same for you. Just trust him by faith, today.
