verse 1:

A rich man once addressed the Lord,
Have I done enough for eternal reward?
I follow God’s commandments, all
And treat my neighbor with brotherly love
(Rich Man: Why do I have this growing sense 
He will uncover my pretense?)

verse 2: 

Jesus sensing this lad’s concern
Went straight to the cause of his burden
He knew this young man’s heart was bound
A captive to the wealth he found
(Jesus: Your money is your treasure; 
God’s not your source of pleasure)

chorus:

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be
For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be

verse 3: 

The rich man heard Jesus declare
Sell your possessions; give the poor your share
And you will have treasure in heaven.
Come follow me, don’t let your life deaden
(Rich man: ‘Tis true, I value my great wealth. 
Sadly, I leave in haste and stealth)

chorus:

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be
For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be

bridge:

Show me all the things that show where your treasure is
Your wallet, your values, your time
Even on the thoughts you dwell
And I can show you what’s important to you, my friend
Does God have a central place in your life?

chorus:

For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be
For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be
