THE FAMILY OF GOD (1970)
W & M by William L (Bill) Gaither

1. I'm so glad I'm a part, of the family of God-
I've been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus, as we travel this sod,
For I'm part of the family, the family of God.

2. You will notice we say "brother and sister" 'round here-
It's because we're a family, and these folks are so near;
When one has a heartache, we all share the tears,
And rejoice in each victory, In this family so dear.

3. From the door of an orphanage, to the house of the King-
No longer an outcast, a new song I sing;
From rags unto riches, from the weak to the strong,
I'm not worthy to be here, But, praise God, I belong!
