Representative Text

1 I have a treasure in my heart
More precious far than gold;
The priceless pearl is mine today,
My wealth cannot be told.

I’m richer than any millionaire,
A thousand times and more,
A wondrous treasure I have found,
An everlasting store.

2 I draw rich treasures day by day
From heaven’s band above,
For all my needs a full supply
Of joy and grace and love. [Refrain]

3 Talk not of banknotes, silver, gold,
I need but few of such;
I’ve riches greater far than these—
Earth cannot tell how much. [Refrain]

4 With treasures here, and treasures there,
Increasing day by day,
I go rejoicing all the time
Upon my pilgrim way. [Refrain]
