O what a blessing
How can I express it?
Out of the fullness of rapture I sing
Now by the Father received and accepted
I am a child and an heir of a King

I am adopted, o what a wonderful love
You've been so good to me
Heir to a heritage, joyfully purchased above
Tell it, my soul, joyfully sing
I am a child and an heir of a King


O what a Father, how tenderly gracious
O what a Savior to make me His care
Tho' I have slighted, rejected and grieved Him
Still He permits me His kingdom to share

When I have finished the work He appoints me
When I have ended my journey below
Then to my Father and Jesus my Savior
Home to a beautiful palace I go

Original lyrics: Fanny Crosby
Case Crayenord & Chris Eaton
