                     [BONUS TRACKS]


                      (Jack H. Hopkins)

                 Well, I may not have lots of money, but I'm a rich man

                 My treasures are laid up beyond this earth

                 You may not know the value of a dedicated life

                 'Cause the world can never tell you what you're worth.


                 And I'm proud to be a follower of Jesus

                 Bearin' my cross and walkin' in the light

                 And though the way gets rocky, He will lead us

                 Helpin' us to live the Christian life.

                  My buddies may not come around to see me

                  I guess they think I won't be too much fun

                 But I’m hopin’ and I’m prayin’ they’ll believe me

                 When I tell ‘em all good things the Lord has done.

The New Christian Life
A Child of the King

                       A CHILD OF THE KING

                       Mashup of A Child of the King (lyrics by Harriett E. Buell) [P.D.]

                                       and tune: The Wildwood Flower (A.P. Carter) [P.D.]


                My Father is rich in houses and lands

                He holdeth the wealth of the world in His hands

                Of rubies and diamonds, of silver and gold

                His coffers are full, He has riches untold.


                My Father’s own Son, the Savior of men

                Once wandered o’er earth as the poorest of them

                But now He is reigning forever on high

                And will give me a home in the heav’n by and by.


                I once was an outcast stranger on earth

                A sinner by choice and an alien by birth

                But I’ve been adopted, my name’s written down

                An heir to a mansion, a robe and a crown.


                A tent or a cottage, why should I care?

                They’re building a palace for me over there

                Though exiled from home, yet still may I sing

                All glory to God; I’m a child of the King!
