Precious Treasures

I placed the stars in the heavens
I painted the rainbows hue
I taught the birds how to sing
I did this all for you

I brought the rain in due season
I capped the mountains with snow
I started rivers and streams
My love for you for to show

For you are my precious treasures
Each one of you dear to me
Don’t ever believe
My love is not real
Remember the marvels you see

I cause the flowers to bloom
I bring the fruit of the vine
I gave you all this creation
So you would know you are mine

Not a day goes by that my love will fade
Not a minute can block my desire
To be close to you
And all that you do
I’m so glad that you are alive

For you are my precious treasures
Each one of you dear to me
Don’t ever believe
My love is not real
Remember the marvels you see

Still Curious

When I was a boy so curious
I loved to go out in the woods
We’d look for strange things
Great joy it did bring
To search for whatever I could

Now that I’m a man still curious
I have a new place to explore
The Word of God speaks
To all who will seek
It’s treasures my heart will implore

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
