By Christine Hare Tate
Things once important are now worthless,
As we put our confidence in the Lord;
The priceless gain of knowing Him
Has become our best reward.
We can’t trust our efforts or goodness,
They’ve been counted as nothing;
By faith we depend on Christ instead,
Our Redeemer, Lord and King.
We endure suffering and death to self
Experiencing new life here on earth,
With the glorious hope of life everafter,
Thru the priceless gift of new birth.
Wealthy are we who faithfully follow
The precepts of truth we’ve heard;
Lead by the Spirit of the living God
Revealed through His holy word.
