1 John 3:1
"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be
called the sons of God:  therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not."

          I belong to the King; I'm a child of His love,
          I shall dwell in His palace so fair,
          For He tells of its bliss in yon heaven above,
          And His children in splendor shall share.

            Chorus
            I belong to the King; I'm a child of His love,
            And he never forsaketh His own.
            He will call me some day to His palace above;
            I shall dwell by His glorified throne.

          I belong to the King, and He loves me I know,
          For His mercy and kindness so free,
          Are unceasingly mine wheresoever I go,
          And my refuge unfailing is He.

            Chorus
            I belong to the King; I'm a child of His love,
            And he never forsaketh His own.
            He will call me some day to His palace above;
            I shall dwell by His glorified throne.

          I belong to the King, and His promise is sure:
          That we all shall be gathered at last
          In His kingdom above, by life's waters so pure,
          When this life with its trials is past.

            Chorus
            I belong to the King; I'm a child of His love,
            And he never forsaketh His own.
            He will call me some day to His palace above;
            I shall dwell by His glorified throne.
