People steal, they cheat and lie
For wealth and what it will buy
Don't they know on judgment day
Gold and silver will melt away?

I'd rather be in a deep, dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and doom my soul

What good is gold and silver, too?
In your hearts not good and true
Sinner, hear me when I say
Fall down on your knees and pray

I'd rather be in a deep, dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
And to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and doom my soul
