The Treasure

I’ve wandered through the valley
I’ve scaled the mountain heights
I’ve travelled down the rivers
Below the stars so bright
In all my earthly travels
And exploits far and wide
Jesus is more beautiful than all

I’ve tasted of the finest foods
I’ve smelled sweet odors vast
I’ve heard the songs of whippoorwills
Deep in the heartland grass
In all that I’ve partaken
Throughout this blessed life
Jesus is the sweetest of them all

Diamonds don’t compare to Him
Rubies fade away
Emeralds lose their luster
Gold is dull and gray
He shines as brightly as the sun
He glimmers in my eye
Jesus is my treasure
Today and for all time

I’ve been with men of high estate
I’ve tasted of that life
I’ve had my days of wealth and fame
I’ve scaled the corporate heights
With all the people I have met
Their power and their might
Jesus is the mightiest of all

In all of His greatness
His mercy covers me
In all of His grandeur
His grace is all I need
Powerful and Mighty
King of Kings is He
Yet He loves me more than I can see

Diamonds don’t compare to Him
Rubies fade away
Emeralds lose their luster
Gold is dull and gray
He shines as brightly as the sun
He glimmers in my eye
Jesus is my treasure
Today and for all time
