God’s riches are always with us
Easy it is to make our own!
Wealth of selfish greedy hearts
In due course desert and disown!
Those who have a hoard of wealth
Find wealth their sole reward,
But the poor in spirit and meek in heart
Rely always on their Lord!
Wealth can bring all pleasures of sense
But quickly they destroy!
Reliance of the Eternal Lord
Will bring never-ending joy!
Earthly wealth will make us slaves,
A burden hard to bear.
But the poor in spirit have God’s riches
A wealth they gladly share!
Blessed are those poor in spirit
For their’s is the Lord, you see;
They live in joy in God’s kingdom
This keeps them always free!
‘Do not store your wealth on earth
Where the selfish moths destroy’
Thieves can easily steal them off
And leave you with empty hand!
Where you keep your wealth for safe,
Sure your heart is there!
Fears and worries will smother you
To force you down at a loss!
Heavenly riches never fail you
Always fill with peace and joy!
The ways of finding this treasure of Lord
Are given in the Holy Word of God!
Wealth of earth perishes soon
Find wealth that ever lasts!
It is not in hoarding but sharing all
Is the only source of wealth!
