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.

Refrain:
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]
