You are the child of a King
An heir to One, who owns all things
You're rich beyond what you could dream
A child of One who reigns supreme

He left a will that was for you
Directions in what you should do
His promise to you from your birth
That you're inheritor of the Earth

No matter what you might have now
Or monetaries you endow
Maybe you're rich, maybe you're poor
The Lord will give the world and more

We look upon the worldly things
And base our worth upon earnings
When all along our Father's King
We're rich because we're His offspring

The last stanza really hit me...I liked it, because we need to focus on things that are more important than monetary things, be it love, family, or, for many, God.

Well done!

Well thank you SD! I'm glad it could speak to you! We need to move our focus off the "worldy" things! Thanks so much!
