Lyrics

Praise the Lord! my heart with His love is beaming,
I am a child of God;
Heaven’s golden light over me is streaming,
I am a child of God.

Refrain

I am a child of God, I am a child of God;
I have washed my robes in the cleansing fountain,
I am a child of God.

Let the saints rejoice with my raptured spirit,
I am a child of God;
I will testify, that the world may hear it,
I am a child of God.

Refrain

Let a holy life tell the Gospel story,
I am a child of God;
How He fills the soul with His grace and glory,
I am a child of God.

Refrain

Saved from sin today, every band is riven,
I am a child of God;
Thro’ the tests of life I have peace from Heaven,
I am a child of God.
