Silver and Gold!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Silver and gold we do not have,
No fame or money hold;
But what we have we freely give,
God’s love and grace unfold.

Silver and gold can’t break sin’s hold,
Or shift its misery;
Jesus God’s Son O rest assured,
Bore all the agony.

Silver and gold for all it’s worth,
No power beyond the grave;
When at life’s end and faced with death,
No strength to heal or save.

Silver and gold can’t buy God’s gift,
By grace alone received;
Poured out on all, the Holy Ghost,
On all who have believed.
