689. O the Beautiful Treasures

1 O the beautiful treasures laid up for the wise,
How precious the value, ow glorious the prize!
Far brighter than diamonds on princes' brow
And richer than royalty can bestow.
O the beautiful treasures laid up for the wise.

2 O the beautiful treasures provided by God,
And promised good people who follow the Word.
And streams of sweet mercy shall bring them home,
To rest from the sorrowful paths they roam.
O the beautiful treasures provided by God.
