Well I met an old man walkin' down the street
His clothes were torn and tattered
With sandals on his feet
And I stopped to help him, and lend him a hand
He said, "I love you so much"
But you must understand

Silver and gold, might buy you a home
But things of this world
They won't last you long
And time has a way of turning us old
And time can't be bought back, with silver and gold

And he said to me, "Let's rest for a while
'Cause I have some good news to share with you, child"
He said, "You can't change this old world"
The people need to know
That a dear Savior died here
A long, long time ago

And silver and gold, might buy you a home
But things of this world
They won't last you long
And time has a way of turning us old
And time can't be bought back, with silver and gold

His eyes shown like diamonds
And his smile was Heaven sent
His hair was long and flowing
And his back was slightly bent
And I knew, he knew it
'Cause that day I changed
And as I watched him walk on, I forgot to get his name

He said, "Silver and gold, can't buy you a home"
When this life has ended, and your time is gone
But you can live in a world where
You'll never grow old
And things can't be bought there, with silver and gold
And time can't be bought back, with silver and gold
