Treasures in Heaven

The treasures of heaven 
Are worth a hundred times 
The wealth in this world
In the strive for the climb.

Focusing on the Son
Who for all came
Rather than wealth,
Fortune and fame.

Vast spiritual assets
Of faith, hope and love
Gained from the Father
From up above.

Through eternity
We are in our prime
Gaining greater riches
Than in our earthly time.

Being directed
By a higher standard
Reaching new heights
And no longer hampered.

    “The treasures of heaven
    Are worth a hundred times
    The wealth in this world
    In the strive for the climb.”
