The Treasure we Seek

The mighty hunt
For treasures great
Not gold or rubies
Or a silver slate
Blessed be the treasure
We all seek
Twill not bring the pleasure
Of diamonds so sleek
NO! My friend, this treasure is fine
But Is not likely to be labeled as just mine
I wish to share this bounty with the world
No man is over the power of The Lord
Our God, who rein o'er all
Creator of things, big and small
It is worth more than a diamond
More precious than wealth in gold
It brings to us a happiness
That, without it, we would not hold
So I pray, with strength and heart
That with God, we never part
