My Bible is like a Treasure Chest
With my Father's Riches inside
T'was opened when I began to seek
Though it was locked when I'd tried to hide

I'd tried to hide from That I had sought
And, believed the world held my gold
But, I found it lay in God, Himself
When I took Him from earth's man-made-mold

I sought God, Himself, not man's concept
He spoke things I'd read, never "heard"
He revealed His Treasures in Jesus
As Gold, woven all through His Word

I love to pour through my Treasure Chest
Caressing Its Gems one by one
Knowing there'll always be Treasure there
The Living Word, Jesus, God's Son
