“What Is Important?”
there is much this world crowns king
And before them all they fall
Mere trinkets and perishable things
Upon these they in foolish faith call.
Don’t they know how vainly they plead
Who stake their dear soul in the finite?
They don’t know that they cannot succeed
Without investing their all in The Light.
For far above treasures and pleasures
Lie important and life-changing values,
Like children and peace beyond measure
And love and the gospel’s Good News!
Distracted, discouraged, and drained?
Oh friend, here is what you must do–
Die to the world and the vain
And live for the Lord who loves you!
