Treasure on the Inside!
To look on my outward appearance
You may not be impressed,
There may not be much beauty, poise,
But take another look, please, look
deep and look wide,
For what I may lack on the outward
is hidden treasure inside.
No longer hidden though
is my greatest heart’s desire,
I want to live from the inside
out for others to admire.
For inside this vessel a living treasure
Not acquired by myself,
But hidden on the inside is a kingdom
of infinite wealth!
A priestly King from Heaven, a Holy seed
Born through virgin loins,
To demonstrate the Father’s love
That many children could be born.
A holy child given unto the world on a starry Christmas night
Hark the herald angels sing praise in abiding shepherd’s hearing
A Heavenly Father’s greatest present freely was in sight
A celebration in my heart as I counted his gift so endearing
I accepted his sacrifice of the punishment meant for me
A kingdom that was purchased not with sweat on brawl
Jesus now my savior that was hung upon a tree
By the shedding of Holy blood no other was endowed.
The Father’s holy gift is still being offered in each and every season
As a precious treasure for all to freely accept and to receive
His heart was to love you; His gift is for this reason
His invitation to be a member of his family for those who will simply believe!
