Representative Text

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.

Oh, 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 happened on a certain day,
This little man was told
That Jesus soon would pass that way,
With something more than gold. [Refrain]

3 Zaccaeus was not tall, and he,
In order to behold,
Made haste into a sycamore tree
For something more than gold. [Refrain]

4 But Jesus stood beneath the tree,
And said, “On Me behold;
Zaccaeus, come down, I’ve bro’t thee
This something more than gold. [Refrain]

5 So he obeyed, and soon he found
The half had not been told;
Where love and joy and peace abound
‘Tis better far than gold. [Refrain]
