1 I AM A CHILD OF ROYAL BIRTH By Anna Johnson I am a child of royal birth. My Father is King of heaven and earth. My spirit was born in the courts on high. A child beloved, a princess (prince) am I. I was nurtured there: I lived by His side. where patience and love abide. In a home My mother was there in that glorious place. Blessing her children with queenly grace. I grew to stature that spirits grow. I gained the knowledge I needed to know. I was taught the truth and I knew the plan ist laid out for man. That God and Chr I was there when the stars of morning sang. I mingled my voice when the heavens rang. I was there to rejoice, to praise and applaud The shouts of joy from the sons of God. I waited my turn and I came to earth Through the wonderful ch annel of human birth. Then the curtains were closed and the past was gone. On the future, too, the curtains were drawn. I lived on earth, and God willed it so. With freedom to choose the way I should go. I must search for truth, I must serve and obey. I mu st walk by faith or fall by the way. Some day I’ll go back: I will answer the call I’ll return with my record to the Father of all. The books will be opened and so will my heart. There will be rejoicing if I’ve done my part. My Father, the King, with his infinite love Will welcome me back to the mansions above. The curtains will part and eternity, In it’s light and glory, will open to me.
