For wealth and what it will buy
But don't they know on judgment day
That gold and silver will melt away
I'd rather be in a dark grave
And to 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
If your hearts not pure and true
Sinner hear me when I say
Fall down on your knees and pray
