1. Seek ye first the kingdom; not the things of earth.
Priceless are the treasures of immortal worth.
Like a flitting shadow, time will pass away,
But the heav’nly riches change not, nor decay.
Seek ye first the kingdom, ’tis the Master’s voice;
In His precious promise evermore rejoice.
All things else, His words are true, shall be added unto you.
In His precious promise, evermore rejoice.
2. Seek ye first the kingdom; seek the gift of God.
’Tis the Savior’s offer purchased by His blood.
Seek ye first His glory; be it life’s sweet aim;
Him to serve and honor, trusting in His name. [Refrain]
