We are not rich by what is in our pockets,

but what is in our hearts.

When God is doing the judging,

that is where He’ll start.

You can possess all the world has to give you

and reach every coveted goal.

But your life will still be a failure,

if you neglect your soul.

The world with all its treasure

will leave the soul unfed.

So when you get weary and sick at heart,

turn to God instead.

Our love for God is best seen in our love for others.

True satisfaction will come by servitude

to all our sisters and brothers.

This is the life that Jesus led;

He lived and died as our example.

We’ll never do it near as good,

but let’s give the world a sample.
