Posted:  03 Jul 2006 03:10
I am looking for the words for a song. The chorus goes something like this:
"Then 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.
Then the King and the beggar walked on arm in arm, you see,
That King was Jesus, and the beggar was me."
Thanks for any help you can give.  Also, if you know who sang the song, I'd love to find the recording.

Hope this helps....

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 am unworthy in Thy presence to be"

Chorus:
  "Then 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.
Then the King and the beggar walked on arm in arm, you see,
That King was Jesus, and the beggar was me."

He who was rich became so poor that a beggar rich might be
The Son of God became the son of man
That people called the the sons of man the sons of God might be
I can't explain it, God's wonderous saving plan
Chorus

Do you know who wrote or recorded this song?
Posted:  08 Feb 2008 05:41
If I am not mistaken, this song was recorded by Lester Roloff or one of the groups or singers associated with his ministry.

This song was originally recorded in the late 70's or early 90's by God's Brady Bunch.  The name of the album is "As for Me and My House (We'll Serve the Lord)"

If anyone can find it on Vinyl or Tape (or better cd or mp3) please post back.  I have been looking for it off and on for years.

One of my favorite songs...I went to a Christian high school and the pastor and his wife used to sing it as a duet. I hadn't thought about it in years. I would love to be able to hear it again!

I'm looking for the person who sings this song and it's called: "Look away mama." I don't know the whole words but I do know that it has these words in it: "Look away mama don't you cry, for the son of men (or God) was born ot die." Please tell me who sings it if you know

These are the words that I have always sang for this Song. They are not alot different, but somewhat. Just thought you might want to know there are probably many versions with subtle differences. This is a beautiful song that I have always enjoyed. May God be praised for the Sacrifices he has made for all of us.

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"

Chorus:
"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

Here is a third versefor the song

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

Chorus

I've not found a free source for the sheet music for "The King and the Beggar" yet (since some are free), but I did find it at this link:
http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web ...

They've actually got it in different formats, different arrangements, etc.  Pretty neat if it is what they say it is.  Try their links on their listing (if your'e still looking for it)

I found it by searching Google.

"A King and a Beggar" is one of the greatest treasures I have!

Rather the memories of my Dad singing it, and now, since he passed in 1994, when I share the song in both praise and my Dad's loving memory.  I have no idea where Dad learned the song, but it was a signature of his, since no one else sang it.  I'd love to know more too.

I have recorded this song with my group 'Berachah Valley'. [http://berachahvalley.com] 

It is a humble, sweet tune.  I hope more people enjoy it, and I hope I can find the proper way to credit the author, one day.

Who wrote this song please?

The only one I have ever heard sing The King and the Beggar is the late Evangelist Billy Kelly.  It is on one of his albums.

My brother sang this song ever since I was a little girl. I am 51 and he would have been 59. but now he is singing this song for the angels. when Lefty sang this song even the most hard hearted sinner man would start to cry. I have seen it happen over and over. I sure miss him. can't wait to see him again and hear him sing it again. and the next to last and last line was
"the King and the beggar walked off hand in hand you see
the King was Jesus, the King of Kings and the lowly beggar was me." Rest in Peace my Hero...I love you

Gayle Russ sings this song. It is available at [www.faithmusicmissions.org].  The album is Just an Ol' Country Boy, but you can buy the individual song as an MP3 for $0.99.

I first heard it sung by Patstor Milford Ely in Tennessee in 1973.
