You Are A "Child of the One True King" (Matthew West)

What a great song this is!  I love how it reminds us of who we really are, our true identity as His children..

All the names that the enemy or the world or even our own thoughts have tried to pin on us are nothing but lies, and only the name God gives us is our true name and identity!  Every other identity is an illusion, no matter how much our actions may seem to support that identity, no matter how many others believe it about us..it doesn't matter, that doesn't make it who we really are, that doesn't change God's opinoin about us!  And only His opinion matters anyway, for He tells us the truth about ourselves - what He says holds infinite weight and stands true no matter what!  And He says we are His children!
 "See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!"     1 John 3:1

Child of the One True King

Matthew West

Hello, my name is regret
I'm pretty sure we have met
Every single day of your life
I'm the whisper inside
That won't let you forget

Hello, my name is defeat
I know you recognize me
Just when you think you can win
I'll drag you right back down again
‘Til you've lost all belief

These are the voices, these are the lies
And I have believed them, for the very last time

Hello, my name is child of the one true King
I've been saved, I've been changed,
And I have been set free
“Amazing Grace” is the song I sing
Hello, my name is child of the one true King

I am no longer defined
By all the wreckage behind
The one who makes all things new
Has proven it's true
Just take a look at my life

What love the Father has lavished upon us
That we should be called His children
I am a child of the one true King
