What Is The Worth of Riches?


What is the worth of riches
When you stand before God’s throne?
Compared to God’s salvation,
Hear the rich young ruler’s moan,

“Why did I turn and leave Christ?
That day when He said to me,
‘Sell your goods,‘ I refused Him
Too late for eternity.”

But the woman cried, “I have found Him!”
When He held out the water true.
It became a living fountain.
Christ did my heart renew.

God holds out His forgiveness
At a moment of your life.
You can turn and spurn His offer,
Or accept His sacrifice.
