How Vast the Treasure We Possess!

Congregational singing
Metropolitan Tabernacle, London
How vast the treasure we possess!
How rich Thy bounty, King of grace!
This world is ours, and worlds to come:
Earth is our lodge, and Heaven our home.
All things are ours − the gifts of God,
The purchase of a Saviour’s blood;
While the good Spirit shows us how
To use, and to improve them too.
If peace and plenty crown my days,
They help me, Lord, to speak Thy praise;
If bread of sorrows be my food,
Those sorrows work my lasting good.
I would not change my blest estate
For all the world calls good or great;
And while my faith can keep her hold,
I envy not the sinner’s gold.
Father, I wait Thy daily will:
Thou shalt divide my portion still,
Grant me on earth what seems Thee best,
Till death and Heaven reveal the rest.
