So hard to give up, the things that we acquire holding onto our treasure on earth when Jesus is calling, “go, sell, give, and follow me”.
Our lives for the earth the world around us so long as the treasure keeps us from God
Let go of our fortune the grain in the silos Cleave to the cross and the one who died there
Our hope, our treasure in the kingdom before us our work, our service here below
Sell all our treasure our barriers to the Lord Trust in the provision of our daily bread
Spread the good news the grace of the father the sacrifice of the son our only way home
