Your Treasure

original song by Raimer Rojas


verse 1:

A rich man once addressed the Lord,

Have I done enough for eternal reward?

I follow God’s commandments, all

And treat my neighbor with brotherly love

(Rich Man: Why do I have this growing sense

He will uncover my pretense?)


verse 2:

Jesus sensing this lad’s concern

Went straight to the cause of his burden

He knew this young man’s heart was bound

A captive to the wealth he found

(Jesus: Your money is your treasure;

God’s not your source of pleasure)

chorus:

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be


verse 3:

The rich man heard Jesus declare

Sell your possessions; give the poor your share

And you will have treasure in heaven.

Come follow me, don’t let your life deaden

(Rich man: ‘Tis true, I value my great wealth.

Sadly, I leave in haste and stealth)

chorus:

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be

bridge:

Show me all the things that show where your treasure is

Your wallet, your values, your time

Even on the thoughts you dwell

And I can show you what’s important to you, my friend

Does God have a central place in your life?
