Matthew 6:19–21 (Listen)

Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust1 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. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Hymn: TLH 214, st. 3,4: Lo, God to Heaven Ascendeth Organ Audio

3. From cross to throne ascending, 
We follow Christ on high 
And know the pathway wending 
To mansions in the sky. 
Our Lord is gone before; 
Yet here He will not leave us, 
But soon in heaven receive us 
And open wide the door. 

4. Our place He is preparing; 
To heaven we, too, shall rise, 
With Him His glory sharing, 
Be where our Treasure lies. 
Bestir thyself, my soul! 
Where Jesus Christ has entered, 
There let thy hope be centered; 
Press onward toward the goal.
