Knowing ChristIs there a treasure worth comparing
To the joy of knowing Christ?
A wealth that's capable of bearing
The burden of an empty life?
Has money ever held the hand
And whispered words of love
To even a single dying man,
And if it could, is that enough?
Can riches ever light the way
When you stand on eternity's shore,
And does it know just what to say
Before you face "Forevermore"?
Will gems impress the Lord of all?
Could they redeem your sinful life?
No jewels dim and gold is dull
Beside the joy of knowing Christ!
