Representative Text

1 Boast thou not of thy golden hoard
To us whose souls are saved;
For in the city of our Lord
The streets with gold are paved.

Refrain:
Lay up thy treasure in heaven,
Of all things make this sure.
Lay up thy treasure in heaven,
And God will keep it secure.

2 Boast thou not of thy jewels fair,
For we redeemed from sin
Through gates of pearl to beauties rare
Will soon be ushered in. [Refrain]

3 Boast thou not of thy mansions here.
For we with blood-washed souls
Have mansions in another sphere,
Where time unending rolls. [Refrain]

4 Boast thou not of thy great renown.
For each who bears Christ's name
Will some day wear a fadeless crown.
And have enduring fame. [Refrain]

5 Freely speak of the Saviour's power,
And of his matchless love,
Resolving thou wilt from this hour
Lay treasure up above. [Refrain]
