1. Of Him I boast, who shed for me
His precious blood on Calvary,
Who bore the cross that I might be
His child forevermore.

Refrain
His child forevermore,
His mercy I adore;
He bore the cross that I might be
His child forevermore.

2. Of Him I boast, my Savior dear,
Who takes away my guilt and fear,
And bids me now by faith draw near,
His child forevermore. [Refrain]

3. Of Him I boast, my Lord and king,
Whose blessèd name I love to sing;
To him alone my heart shall cling,
His child forevermore. [Refrain]

4. Of Him I’ll boast, while here I stay,
And then to realms of endless day
I’ll spread my wings and fly away,
His child forevermore. [Refrain]
