Lyrics

I’m a subject of the King of kings,
He has called me for a service, this I know;
I shall represent Him here,
Tell His story far and near,
And when He is done with me with Him I’ll go.

Refrain

I’m a subject of the King of kings,
I’m a subject of the King of kings,
He has saved me by His love,
I’m commanded from above,
I’m a subject of the King of kings.

I’ll be faithful to the King of kings,
Living every day so He may say ’tis well;
While He’s training me for glory,
I will tell the old, old story,
How a sinner saved with Jesus there shall dwell.

Refrain

Join the service of the King of kings,
There is glorious work that everyone can do;
Never bring to Him disgrace,
Ever looking at His face,
Fight the battle, there’s a crown in store for you.
