What Shall It Profit A Man?


What Shall It Profit A Man?
By Marie C Neubauer

If we gained the whole world,
And had all we desire,
If we achieved fame,
That few do acquire,
If we had all the riches
And longings of our heart,
And all of the comforts
Life could impart,
If we attained in life
Every dream and goal,
What would it profit?
If we lost our soul?

For all of these things,
Will soon pass away,
All of life’s treasures
Shall rust and decay,
All the riches and honors
We sought to achieve,
Will be given to others
After we leave,
For when we pursue
Only earthly goals,
What shall we give
In exchange for our souls?


‘For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
And what shall he give in exchange for his soul?’
[Matthew 16:26]
