181. Have You Any Treasures Up There?

1 There’s a city, I’m told, guilt of jasper and gold,
Clear as crystal, its wonderful light;
Some are entering there, with adornings so fair,
And their crowns are unspeakably bright.

Have you any treasures up there?
In the home He’s gone to prepare?
Have you stor’d them away, to be yours in that day,
Have you any treasures up there?

2 Ev’ry deed that we do, loving, upright and true,
Ev’ry word that we speak “in His name,”
Is a beautiful gem for the King’s diadem,
And a treasure some day we may claim.

Have you any treasures up there?
In the home He’s gone to prepare?
Have you stor’d them away, to be yours in that day,
Have you any treasures up there?

3 When our dear ones depart, there’s a balm for the heart,
They have entered the mansions on high;
They are treasures to shine in the glory divine;
We shall find them again, by and by.

Yes, I’ve many treasures up there?
In the home He’s gone to prepare,
I have stor’d them away to be mine in that day;
Yes, I’ve many treasures up there.
