Verse 1: The treasures of earth are not mine, I hold not its silver or gold; But a treasure far greater is mine. I have riches of value untold.
Verse 2: The treasures of earth must all fail, Its riches and honor decay; But the riches of love that are mine, Even death cannot take them a way.
Verse 3: Compared with the riches of love, The wealth of the world is but dross; I will seek but Christ Jesus to win, And for Him I count all things but loss.
Verse 4: Come, take of the riches of Christ, Exhaustless and free is the store; Of its wonderful fulness receive, Till you hunger and thirst nevermore.
Chorus: O, the depth of the riches of love, The riches of love in Christ Jesus! Far better than gold or wealth untold, Are the riches of love in Christ Jesus.
