I've never known prosperity
In coins of silver, gold
Of diamond laden jewelry
With precious stones to hold

No pennies line my pockets
No bills I need to fold
No chains, no rings, or lockets
No treasures bought or sold

Fortune never smiled at me
In monetary ways
Living in adversity
Has filled my years and days

A commerce life to lend me
In sums that multiply
Interest, funds and currency
Have mostly passed me by

My home is yet a mansion
With wealth beyond compare
A wardrobe full of fashion
God's purpose, gifts and flair

Blessings come from Heaven
Wealth alone abides
Within the hearts we're given
Sparkle from inside

A place to own forever
To share with others well
A purpose not to lever
Borrow, beg or sell

Peace and Joy in every way
Reward our daily deeds
In the end the price we pay
Tallies all our needs
