They Will Perish


They Will Perish
By Christine Hare Tate

Show off your medals and
display all your trophies,
boast of your wealth
brag of your awards,
but remember in the end
you can’t take them with you
when you stand before the Lord!

Shine your golden idols
and put them on a shelf,
stand them side by side…
if there’s no room for Jesus
your treasures are worthless,
they will perish one day
along with foolish pride!

Exchange your prize possessions
for a priceless inheritance,
and everlasting reward,
purchased by Christ’s blood,
paid in full for you and I
by our Savior and Lord!


 ‘For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.’
Matthew 6:21]
