1 A goodly pearl lies hidden well,
The place no worldly mind can tell,
But to the seeker of the Lord
It is revealed within His word.
2 This goodly pearl of beauty rare,
Excels by far all jewels fair;
It spreads abroad a luster bright
That fill each heart with great delight.
3 Well him who sold his goods to buy
This goodly pearl, of value high,
A wealth of mercy, grace, and love
Is given him from heav'n above.
4 This goodly pearl protects the heart
And sets it from the world apart;
Where'er its light shines bright and clear,
All sin and shame must disappear.
5 Though clouds obscure the sun of day
And gloom of night falls on the way,
This goodly pearl shall ever shine
And lead him by its light divine.
6 The owner, watched by heav'n above
An object of its grace and love,
Some day receives a call to come
And praise this pearl with saints at home.
