Seventy years is all we got
To accumulate goods that seem to mean a lot
For the first twenty years, you're off to school
Learnin' principles and learnin' the tools
To make lots of money, the ultimate goal
Gain the whole world and yet lose ya soul
Huh, humanism is on a roll
Twenty gets the the knowledge, thirty years to apply
And just twenty years left for askin' why
I didn't realize what it was all about
And, was there any use in this rigorous rout because
Things of this world are passin' away
Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay
Things of this world are passin' away
So lay your treasure above
And start to live for Him today
All done for self in this world will pass
And all done for Christ in this world will last
Sounds like a simple task
But everyday life seems to get in the way
No time to serve, barely time to pray
Our focal points lost and we get tossed
In the wind, cold facin' the cost
Of fallin' without stallin' or even callin' the Lord
While you were blackballin'
He was waitin' for you to see the light
And find for yourself, these things are trite
Things of this world are passin' away
Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay
Things of this world are passin' away
So lay your treasure above
And start to live for Him today
Our mind transforms a want to a need
A simple process that we call greed
Ya say ya like to have money, well I do too
The problem starts when the money has you
Workin' overtime to keep up with the pace
A lifestyle that you want to embrace
But it's two steps from where your needs are met
You're keepin' up with the Jones', but your all in debt
Which will lead to stress, not meeting the bills
While ya sportin' a Benz with all the thrills
The domino effect's gotcha life in check
A temporary stitch and ya livin' a wreck
Things of this world are passin' away
Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay
Things of this world are passin' away
So lay your treasure above
And start to live for Him today
Things of this world are passin' away
Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay
Things of this world are passin' away
So lay your treasure above
And start to live for Him today
Things of this world are passin' away
Here tomorrow, but they're sure not here to stay
Things of this world, the things of this world
The things, the things, the things of this world
Don't lay up your treasures upon this Earth
They'll soon pass away and all return to dirt
Don't lay up your treasures upon this Earth
They'll soon pass away and all return to dirt
Don't lay up your treasures upon this Earth
They'll soon pass away and all return to dirt
