Representative Text

1 God owns the whole wide world,
All the silver and the gold,
Are you keeping back the money of the King?
Will His children rob their Lord?
Disobey His Holy word?
Are you keeping back the money of the King!

Refrain:
Are you keeping back His money?
His money? His money?
Are you keeping back the money of the King?
What can you answer, friend?
When before His throne you stand,
If you keep back the money of the King.

2 God wants the world to know,
Of salvation here below,
Are you keeping back the money of the King?
Shall the lost ones watch and wait,
For the help that comes too late?
While you’re keeping back the money of the King! [Refrain]

3 God bless the saints who pray,
With the ones who go or pay,
They’re not keeping back the money of the King;
O what dreadful woes will fall
On the ones who slight His call,
And are keeping back the money of the King! [Refrain]

4 God’s smile is on each soul,
Who will let Him have control,
And is pouring out the money of the King;
He will keep us by His grace,
Till we see Him face to face,
While we’re pouring out the money of the King! [Refrain]
