Refrain: Where your treasure is, there your heart shall be.
All that you possess will never set you free.
See the things that last; Come and learn from me.
Where your treasure is your heart shall be.
1. What do you gain from all your worry,
What you should eat or what to wear?
There is no peace in stress or hurry.
Do you not know that your are held within GodŐs care?
2. Look at the ravens high above you.
They do not work their whole life through,
And yet God feeds them and protects them
So how much more will God protect and care for you?
3. Behold the lilies in their splendor.
In grace and beauty are they dressed,
And yet so soon their bloom is faded.
So how much more will those who look to God be blessed?
Coda/Bridge: Do not fear, little flock, for God delights
to give you the blessed reign of God.
Give your possessions to the needy;
Gain a treasure that will not fade.
Refrain (repeat last line: Where your treasure is your heart shall be.)
