There are treasures in earth of silver and gold,
But they fade away when this life is ore.
There’s one treasure sure in this life I seek –
Eternal in the heavens that fadeth not away.
Where your treasure is there your heart will dwell,
Where your eye does see there your heart will be.
So let your treasure be in the heavens above,
And the centre of your life be in Jesus’ love.
There the storm cannot take your peace away,
And the cares of life in Christ will fade away.
And the love of God will flood over you,
For he that dwelleth here will not be moved.
