It matters not if I ever eat
Gourmet foods and fine steak.
It matters not if I ever wear
The finest clothes they make.
It matters not if I ever drive
The best cars that they sell.
What really matters most to me is
With the Lord, is my soul well?
We can just sin away our lives
And waste them down here below,
Or we can accept Jesus as Savior.
In His grace, then we can grow.
There is great peace in knowing
That when this life here is o'er,
I will step into God's presence
On that peaceful, golden shore.
