Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

[19]”Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, [20]but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 347 st. 1,4,6: Jesus, Priceless Treasure Hymnary.org link

1. Jesus, priceless Treasure, 
Fount of purest pleasure, 
Truest Friend to me. 
Ah, how long in anguish 
Shall my spirit languish, 
Yearning, Lord, for Thee? 
Thou art mine, O Lamb divine! 
I will suffer naught to hide Thee, 
Naught I ask beside Thee. 

4. Hence, all earthly treasure! 
Jesus is my Pleasure, 
Jesus is my Choice. 
Hence, all empty glory! 
Naught to me thy story 
Told with tempting voice. 
Pain or loss, Or shame or cross, 
Shall not from my Savior move me 
Since He deigns to love me. 

6. Hence, all fear and sadness! 
For the Lord of gladness, 
Jesus, enters in. 
Those who love the Father, 
Though the storms may gather, 
Still have peace within. 
Yea, whate’er I here must bear, 
Thou art still my purest Pleasure, 
Jesus, priceless Treasure!
