A Child of God!

Today at Awakening Theology I want to share with you a song from my church heritage. In the early years of the Church of God (Anderson), one of our prominent hymn writers, Barney E. Warren, penned a song that is one of my favorites. It's entitled A Child of God. I requested that it be sung last night at our Wednesday evening service. A Child of God boosts my spirit and brings me peace as I sing these comforting (and powerful) words.

Please read the words of shekinah:

1 Praise the Lord! my heart with his love is beaming, I am a child of God;
Heaven's golden light over me is streaming, I am a child of God.

2 Let the saints rejoice with my raptured spirit, I am a child of God:
I will testify, that the world may hear it, I am a child of God.

3 Let a holy life tell the gospel story, I am a child of God;
How he fills the soul with his grace and glory, I am a child of God.

4 Saved from sin today, ev'ry band is riven, I am a child of God;
Thro' the tests of life I have peace from heaven, I am a child of God.

(chorus)

I am a child of God, I am a child of God;
I have washed my robes in the cleansing fountain,
I am a child of God.
