God blessed me with a treasure chest absent of pearls or gold

Or silver coins or diamond rings or rubies to be sold.

That chest I claimed the very day twas taken from the sea

And placed upon my joyful heart unlocked such gifts for me.


God blessed me with a treasure chest no match one e’er could find.

A glow inside that fills all up, a loving special kind.

Just leave on me that priceless chest as I doze off to sleep

For that’s all treasure I demand or ever hope to keep.
