Matthew 13:44–46

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

(ESV)

Hymn : TLH 347 st. 1,6: 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. 

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!
