The things the world can offer,
False pleasures of the flesh,
They can't compare to what God gives,
True peace and happiness.
They can't be bought with money,
Those things that fill your soul,
But He will give to those who ask,
The treasures one can't hold.
No thief can ever steal them,
It's hidden from their eyes,
For it lies in the inner man,
The riches God provides.
