RICHES


RICHES!


Riches without SORROW – only God can give
For the rich man in his greed thinks he'll outlive
The poor, the meek, the beggar in the street
Because he trusts his riches against God to compete!




Riches without FEAR – only God can give
For the rich man in his arrogance thinks he has no need
For child-like faith, or Almighty God in his life
Since with his money he purchases the bodyguards he feeds!


Riches without GUILT – only God can give
For the rich man in his great pride believes
His money entitles him to achieve
Whatever, and whoever, his lusts can conceive to receive!


Ah, rich man, now poor man – if only you knew
The God of Creation is always watching you
To see if your riches will to His Glory attend
Or give you the things that'll cause you into hell to descend!


Repent ye, this day, and to the Lord give your praise
Don't worship the things that fade and rust away
Be kind to the unfortunate, the downtrodden, the weak
And at the first resurrection, up to Heaven, you'll be raised! **BJC**
