THE FAMILY OF GOD

CHORUS:
D                             E7
I'm so glad I'm a part of the family of God-
          A7                                      D
I've been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His blood!
                             E7
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod;
        A7                                D   G/D D
For I'm part of the family, the family of God.

VERSE 1:
D
You will notice we say "brother and sister" 'round here,
        A7                       D
It's be-cause we're a family and these are so near;

When one has a heartache, we all share the tears,
       A7                                      D    G/D D
And re-joice in each victory in this family so dear. 

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 2:
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!

(REPEAT CHORUS)
