Representative Text

1. We are the treasures of Christ the King;
Jesus has given us each good thing;
Voices to sing for Him songs of praise,
Feet to run willingly in His ways.

We are the treasures of Christ the King,
Happy that we of His love may sing;
All of our powers to Him will we bring;
We are the treasures of Christ the King.

2. Boys who are manly, and pure and true,
Girls who are happy and useful, too,
Through all the powers that God has giv’n,
Make earth an Eden and home a heav’n. [Refrain]

3. We are His treasures; our hands and heart,
Placed in His keeping, must do their part;
He will employ all our powers each day,
We will serve Jesus in work and play. [Refrain]

Showing early musical promise, William Marion Runyan (b. Marion, NY, 1870; d. Pittsburg, KS, 1957) was a substitute church organist by the age of twelve. He became a Methodist minister in 1891 and served several churches in Kansas but turned to evangelism in 1903; he worked for the Central Methodist Conference for the next twenty years. Following that service, Runyan became pastor at the Federated Church at John Brown University, Sulphur Springs, Arkansas. Editor of Christian Workers Magazine, he also served the Moody Bible Institute and was an editor for Hope Publishing Company until his retirement in 1948.
