"Lay Down Your Kingdom" as written by and David Olney....
The truest heart will not be tempted
With bright silver or shining gold
For all your wealth she'd not speak falsely
And all your power cannot hold
Lay down your kingdom lay down
Lay down your kingdom lay down

Her face is fair to those who know her
The rest are blind, they cannot see
And in her eyes you see forever
Endless joy and misery
Lay down your kingdom lay down
Lay down your kingdom lay down

Some men gamble for their pleasure
Some men gamble for their greed
I will gamble for her favor
I will gamble out of need
Lay down your kingdom lay down
Lay down your kingdom lay down

Here's to our Lady of Good Fortune
Deliver me from an evil hand
Here's to the one who plays against me
Be he spirit or be he man
Lay down your kingdom lay down
Lay down your kingdom lay down
Lay down your kingdom lay down
Lay down your kingdom lay down
