Treasure

Would you like to have riches that never grow old,
Find treasure that’s far more precious than gold?
Then come, search it out, but do not delay;
Look at the scriptures, they’ll show you the way.

See how they point you to Calvary’s cross,
To the Saviour, suffering shame and loss.
He died there alone when He hung on the tree
To save and to justify both you and me.

A soldier pierced the Saviour’s side,
His blood flowed out, though He had died,
And through His blood sinners can know
Their sins forgiven, made whiter than snow.

Jesus rose from the grave, God’s own blessed Son;
Death was defeated, the victory won.
Now He looks down from the glory above,
Waiting and willing to save you.  What love!

By accepting this work was completed for you
Your heart can be made all clean and new.
So give Jesus your heart and you will receive
Treasures untold if you’ll simply believe.
