Priceless bars of burnished gold,
My whole being does enfold;
I know at last the Master’s will,
With jewels rare, my heart is filled.
Pearls and rubies, em’ralds bright,
Gems that shine throughout the night;
I’m richer than an earthly queen,
For with the Master, I have been.
I’ve traveled to his palace fine,
I’ve drank with him the sweetest wine;
No more to sip from Bab’lon’s cup,
The true vine’s yield does fill me up.
Lord of Lords and King of Kings,
Conveys the gift of angel’s wings;
Upon that faithful little flock,
Who opened to the Master’s knock.
I see the place prepared for me,
By the One who set me free;
From self, the world and Satan too,
He’s making all things so bran new.
This treasure’s not the earthly kind,
The world will seek-but never find;
For every piece I hold in store,
Is safe behind great heaven’s door.
If you also want a share,
In this treasure-oh, so rare;
Then you must choose to stand alone,
With Christ-beside the heavenly throne.
Consecrate your all to him,
If the prize you want to win;
You’ll find no treasure can compare,
With Jesus Christ, the Kingdom heir
