all I can remember of the words are the last few of the chorus-"that king was Jesus and the beggar was me"

Hello MyrtleHandel ,
We already had this song in the archive

The King & the Beggar

Verse One:
A King met a beggar on a lonely road one day
A strange occurance took place as you will see
The beggar fell upon his knees and cried "Oh pardon me
I feel unworthy in Thy presence to be"

"The King looked at the beggar,
And He said, You've been set free,
Now your sins are all forgiven, and you've been born into royalty.
Then the King and the beggar walked off arm in arm, you see,
That King was Jesus, the King of Kings and that lowly beggar was me."

Verse Two:
He who was rich became so poor that I might be set free
The Son of God became the son of man
And through the fallen Son of Man the Son of God might be,
I can't explain it, God's wonderous saving plan

Verse Three
I never dreamed there was a power
that could save a wretch like me
Until the day the King passed by my way ,
He placed His arms around me
and He said I'll be your guide
What a difference since
The King walked by my side .

Here is a video of this song
