THE GREAT POSSESSION

What have I gained if I lose Christ,
for into fire I shall be cast,
but for me He paid the price
so I could have a life that lasts.

I may have worldly goods abundant,
but God opened my eyes to see
that possessions down here are worthless
for soon they'll be taken from me.

There's a building of God in Heaven
where with Him I can forever stay
in a mansion not made with hands,
when my earthly house passes away.

There is only one possession that matters --
my Savior's precious love!
It lifts me to realms of supernal joy
when I think of Him above.
