The King and the beggar

THE KING AND THE BEGGAR was written by Wilburn Fisher in the mid-sixties.

A King and A Beggar
Verse 1
A King met a beggar on a lonely road one day
A strange occurrence took place as you will see
The beggar fell upon his knees and cried "Oh pardon me!"
"I am unworthy in Thy presence to be."

And the King looked at the beggar,
And He said, You've been set free,
Your sins are all forgiven, now You're born in royalty.
And so the King and the beggar walked off arm in arm, you see,
That King was Jesus, and the beggar was me.

Verse 2
He who was rich became so poor that the beggar rich might be
The Son of God became the son of man
That we poor fallen sons of men the sons of God might be
I can't explain it, God's wondrous saving plan.

Wilburn was in a revival meeting at the State Street Assembly of God in East Saint Louis, IL with pastors Otis and Hazel Runyon. My wife, Nelma and I learned the song from Wilburn in the parsonage around the piano. He later published it.
