"House of Gold" as written by Sr. Williams and Sr. Williams....
People cheat, they steal and lie
For wealth and what that wealth will buy
But don't they know on the 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
Than deny my God, and doom my soul

What good is gold, and silver too
When your heart's not good and true
So sinner, hear me when I say
Fall down on your knees and pray

And 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
Than deny my God, and doom my soul

Jesus died there on the cross
So this world would not be lost
Sinner hear now what I say
For some day you'll have to pay

And 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
Than deny my God, and doom my soul
