Hymn/Song Information

VANITY OF WORLDLY RICHES




While the miser boasts his store,
He but aggravates his sin:
While he counts his treasures oer,
Conscience smites and frowns within.


Riches of uncertain date,
Neer can make us truly blest;
Earthly grandeur, pomp and state
All are empty things at best.


Ive a treasure in the skies,
Where my Saviour sits and reigns;
He my every want supplies,
Jesus soothes my inward pains.


Richest blessings I possess,
From his fulness they are given;
Hes my strength and righteousness,
He prepares my seat in heaven.
