Hymn/Song Information

ADOPTED




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

I am adopted, O wonderful love,
Heir to a heritage purchased above;
Tell it, my soul, and 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.

I am adopted, O wonderful love,
Heir to a heritage purchased above;
Tell it, my soul, and joyfully sing,
I am a child and an heir of a King.



O the unsearchable
riches He giveth,
Riches increasing from day unto day;
Treasures in value
all others excelling,
Treasures that never
will rust nor decay.

I am adopted, O wonderful love,
Heir to a heritage purchased above;
Tell it, my soul, and joyfully sing,
I am a child and an heir of a King.



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.

I am adopted, O wonderful love,
Heir to a heritage purchased above;
Tell it, my soul, and joyfully sing,
I am a child and an heir of a King.
