What If I Gain everything, But Lose My Soul?
What if I gain everything, but lose my soul?
Would it really be worth it? I don’t think so.
If I could purchase all that money could by…
I can’t take it with me that day I shall die!
If I had all of this world’s riches and fame…
I’d be empty inside. And myself only to blame!
Though many things in this world are alluring.
The satisfaction they promise,
is not reassuring!
I’ve found the secret to life, and true success!
It comes from living for Jesus! HE is the best!
Only he can give true love and peace within!
Only he can bring healing and forgiveness of sin!
In Christ, I have gained everything and much more!
It is his treasures of life,
that’s worth living for!
JESUS can give contentment,
this world can’t bring!
Only he can give true satisfaction!
I am bought by his sacrifice! I’m not my own!
I’m going to make plans for my heavenly home!
Jesus is the only one I need to make it through!
I will always tell him; “Jesus, I sure love YOU!”
I thank you my Lord for nourishing my soul!
By your grace… I’m made complete and whole!
