I'm looking for lyrics to I'm Happy Just To Know that I'm His Child
It maybe called I'm His Child

I only know portions of this song. I've not had any luck looking on the Internet, and though I know some female vocalist sings it on one of my CDs and tapes, I can't put my hands on it.

Here's a portion of the lyrics to the song I'm thinking of:

I may not be the best of anything [?]
Have the best of anything.
Sometimes I feel that I'm the least of all
But I have someone who is everything
And he is my everything
I'm happy just to know that I'm his child.

{he's the lily of the valley and the bright and morning star}???

-snip-

Is this the Gospel song you're searching for?

If so, I'm going to continue looking. If the lyrics aren't posted by tomorrow, I can probably get the lyrics from someone I know who sings in a church choir and another person I know who conducts a church choir.

Best wishes,

Azizi

This page (click) has lyrics that are just a bit different from what Azizi posted:

I may not be the best of anything
but God expects my everything.
Sometimes I feel that I'm all alone.
I know someone who has everything
and he is my everything,
I'm happy just to know that I'm his child."


from the song, "His Name is Jesus"


Maybe these fragments will help somebody find the entire song (or maybe it's not the right song at all).

I still can't find that CD. But, thanks to Joe's post, I remembered these lyrics. I'll write all the lyrics that I remember them:

I'M HAPPY JUST TO KNOW THAT I'M HIS CHILD [HE'S NAME IS JESUS]

I may not be the best of anything.
Have the best of anything.
Sometimes I feel that I'm the least of all
But I have someone who is everything
And he is my everything
I'm happy just to know that I'm his child.

chorus:
His name is Jesus
the righteous son of God.
He's the lily of the valley
{The} bright and morning star
His name is Jesus.
He's my everything.
{And} I am happy just to know
that I'm his child.

-snip-

[I know that the chorus is repeated several times. There may be additional words, but the version of the song that I have ends with these words]:

I am happy just to know-
I am happy just to know-
I am happy just to know-
that I'm his child.

[The female singer got happy at the end and sang "Oh-o yes! Say Amen Yes!]

Yes!

Zella Jackson Price who I was thinking of. An all too brief clip of Zella singing that song can be heard at
http://www.amazon.com/Say-Amen-Somebody-Original-Soundtrack/dp/B000000PGX.

I have this video somewhere but it's hiding out with the CD. The video features Thomas A. Dorsey, Sallie Martin, The Barrett Sisters, The Oneal Twins, and others. All of the reviews of this video that are posted on the Amazon website are highly complimentary.

If you like gospel music, you'll love "Say Amen Somebody".

Btw, the song's correct name is "I'm His Child".

I'm not sure who the composer is.

I have a recording of this song from the Mississippi Mass Choir, cir 1984, live at Ole Miss. It is one of the most powerful songs I have every heard.

His name is Jesus
Righteous son of God
Lily of Valley, Bright and Morning Star
His name is Jesus
He's my everything
And I happy just to know that I'm His child

I may not have the best of everything or be the best at anything sometimes I feel that I'm the least of all.
But I know someone who has everything, He's my everything and I'm happy just to know that I'm his child.
His name is Jesus, Righteous son of God
Lily of the valley, Bright and morning star
His name is Jesus, he's my everything. I'm so happy just to know that I'm his child.

God bless!

These are the correct lyrics to the song -(I'm His Child)

I'M HIS CHILD

I may not be the best at anything,
Nor have the best of everything,
sometime I feel that I'm the least of all,
But I know someone who has everything,
and Jesus is my everything'
I'm just happy just to know that I'm his child.

His name is Jesus, He's the righteous son of God,
He's the lily of the valley, He's My bright and morning star.
His name is Jesus, and he's my everything
And I'm just happy just to know that I'm his child.

His name is Jesus, He's the righteous son of God,
He's the lily of the valley, he's my bright and morning star.
His name is Jesus, He's the righteous son of God,
He's the lily of the valley, He's my bright and morning star,
His name is Jesus, and He's my everything,
And I'm just happy just to know that I'm his child.

I don't think Max has ever answered to the name of God, but his site is great for finding music lyrics. And we all say "you're welcome!"

I'M HIS CHILD

I may not be the best at anything
Nor have the best of anything
Sometimes I feel like I'm the least of all
But, I know Someone who has everything
And He is my everything
And I'm happy just to know that I'm His child

Chorus:
His Name is Jesus, Righteous (Begotten/original lyric) Son of God
Lily of the valley, Bright and Morning Star
His Name is Jesus and He's my everything
And I am happy just to know that I'm His child

2nd Verse:
Sometimes when problems seem too much to bear
And it seems there's no one who cares
He's a Friend that will never let you down
He know how much that I can really bear
And I know that He really cares
And I'm happy just to know that I'm His child

(return to Chorus)
