Do riches lay in what a man hath,

That which he holds in his hands

Those fleeting earthly riches

That drain away as the sands ?

Or do true riches lay

Within the inner man

His heart, his soul, his spirit

Which make him what they can ?

For the richest of the rich

Can be much poorer that the poor

If money close his heart to them

As a mighty steel vault door.

A poor man in his integrity

Can be the richest man of all

When his heart is turned to God -

He can make the great men fall.

So are the riches of this world

Really worth how much they cost ?

For 'tis better to be a poor man saved -

Than to be a rich man lost !

Mark 10:17-27
