Robert Harkness (1880–1961)


I’m a sub­ject of the King of kings,
He has called me for a ser­vice, this I know;
I shall rep­re­sent Him here,
Tell His sto­ry far and near,
And when He is done with me with Him I’ll go.


I’m a sub­ject of the King of kings,
I’m a sub­ject of the King of kings,
He has saved me by His love,
I’m com­mand­ed from above,
I’m a sub­ject of the King of kings.

I’ll be faith­ful to the King of kings,
Living ev­ery day so He may say ’tis well;
While He’s train­ing me for glo­ry,
I will tell the old, old sto­ry,
How a sin­ner saved with Je­sus there shall dwell.


Join the ser­vice of the King of kings,
There is glo­ri­ous work that ev­ery­one can do;
Never bring to Him dis­grace,
Ever look­ing at His face,
Fight the bat­tle, there’s a crown in store for you.
