Building Treasure

What treasure will you build
What has value for you
Do you follow the world
Or something that contrasts
To the pursuit
Of wealth and treasure
We value treasure
Like a precious thing
Gold and gems and silver
Fashioned and placed
In a special setting
But to God Who made Heaven
And prepares a place for me
Gold is what He uses
Just to pave the streets
Value in human terms
Is not a thing
That has a place in Heaven
In God’s eternity
The things He place
His value on
Are each and every
One of us who
Have a heart that beats
What treasure will you build
