Verse 1:  Not all earth’s gold and silver Can make a sinner whole; What shall it profit thee, O man, If thou should’st lose thy soul?
Verse 2:  The heaping up of riches To many seems life’s goal; But in the eager rush for wealth, Forgotten is the soul.
Verse 3:  This solemn question answer; Is worldly gain thy goal? Can fleeting riches be compared To an immortal soul?
Chorus: What shall it profit a man, What shall it profit a man, If he gain the whole world, And lose his own soul?
