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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain

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.

Refrain
