C2. Something More than Gold

1 A certain man of whom we read
Who lived in days of old,
Though he was rich, he felt his need
Of something more than gold.

O yes, my friend! there’s something more,
something more than gold,
To know your sins are all forgiv'n
is something more than gold.

2 It happen'd on a certain day
This little man was told
That Jesus soon would pass that way
With something more than gold. [Refrain]

3 He climb'd a tree above the crowd
So that he might behold
The blessed One with pow'r to give
something more than gold. [Refrain]

4 The Saviour came along the way,
And saw him on the tree,
Then calling to him Jesus said:
'I must abide with thee!' [Refrain]

5 So he obey'd, and soon he found
The half had not been told,
The blessing Jesus brought to him
Was better far than gold. [Refrain]
