Seeking worldly things is a strong desire.
We love to collect, and we love to acquire.
But choosing that path, only leads us astray.
So let's visit the sick and serve the poor.
These are commands that we can't ignore.
Heavenly treasures never rust or decay.
He's recorded it all.
Deeds big and small.
He's servin' a banquet in His heavenly hall.
It's gonna be fun
to hear well done,
Good and faithful servant, celebrate with my Son.
If we seek recognition for all we do,
and fame and fortune is what we pursue.
God's given warning; that's the wrong way to go.
For humble deeds here, there awaits a surprise.
The wheat and tares'll be recognized.
Our eyes will be opened, and everyone will know.
Some teach every Sunday, tithe ten percent,
give testimonies and claim to repent.
They fool everybody, but not the Lord.
He wants us in His word and on our knees,
to quietly answer the suffering's pleas.
Living by faith, we'll see our true reward.
