I live in a mansion
without silver and gold.
I have not riches or diamonds,
nor life's finest to behold.
You see, my wealth is in Jesus;
The Giver of Life.
His beauty is endless,
and radiant, His Light.
I've found in Him a wealth more pure
than all life's stocks and bonds;
More powerful than a mighty thrust,
or what dreams are built upon.
Nay, fame and fortune have I not
with servants in all places.
My only wish; to live for Thee
who grants Eternal Graces.
I have gold beyond the stars,
God's Word; the Richest Kind.
In Him we live, move, and have our being,
He's the Golden Gift of Life.
