Lyrics

Here we bring, small or great,
gifts to offer on this plate,
what we’ve earned, what we own,
tithe or token, bread or stone,

REFRAIN:
Jesus said, “Have a care – your heart will always be
where your riches are, where your riches are.”

Food and drink, things obsess,
drug us to false happiness;
what we keep, what we give,
tells the truth of how we live.

REFRAIN:
Jesus said, “Have a care – your heart will always be
where your riches are, where your riches are.”

Moth and rust breed decay,
thieves break in and steal away;
love and trust need no hoard,
richest treasure can’t be stored,

REFRAIN:
Jesus said, “Have a care – your heart will always be
where your riches are, where your riches are.”

Wild flowers grow, birds find seed,
God attends to each one’s need;
as we share, all can live,
as we love, we learn to give,

REFRAIN:
Jesus said, “Have a care – your heart will always be
where your riches are, where your riches are.”

Author Shirley Erena Murray, from her book In Every Corner Sing (Hope Publishing Co., 1992): “There seem to be very few hymns on money, though the Gospel is full of it!”
