            Chorus
            I'm so glad I'm a part of the family of God
            I've been washed in the fountain cleansed by His blood!
            Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
            For I'm part of the family, the family of God.

          You wil notice we say "brother and sister" 'round here -
          It's because we're a family and these folks are so near;
          When one has a heartache we all share the tears,
          And rejoice in each victory in this family so dear.

            Chorus
            I'm so glad I'm a part of the family of God
            I've been washed in the fountain cleansed by His blood!
            Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
            For I'm part of the family, the family of God.

          From the door of an orphanage to the house of the King -
          No longer an outcast, a new song I sing;
          From rags unto riches, from the weak to the strong,
          I'm not worthy to be here, but praise God I belong!

            Chorus
            I'm so glad I'm a part of the family of God
            I've been washed in the fountain cleansed by His blood!
            Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
            For I'm part of the family, the family of God.
