play If My Soul Should Be Required Tonight

from Wise As Serpents...Gentle As A Dove (To order CD to be shipped to you select Order/Ship Physical CD;  for downloads select the album title in blue)

Once there was a farmer
Whose land produced so well
his barns could not contain the excess grain
He built the barns up larger
And then said to himself
I've all I need for years now laid away
But God said to him,
Fool! This night your soul shall be required
And all this wealth of yours
Whose will it be?

(Chorus)
And if my soul should be required tonight
What would Jesus say to me?
If my soul should be required tonight
Would my treasure stay with me?
Would he find me rich in things
Or find me rich in Christ
If my soul should be required tonight

There is always someone
Who's urging me to buy
Who's making luxury look like a need
Investments in convenience
In comfort and in style
With all my satisfaction guaranteed
And its bigger, better, newer, faster
Buy now pay tomorrow
Seduced with credit cards and toll free lines

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
And its so easy to justify
The way I live, and all these things I buy
But this world's so hungry, Lord I've seen the need
Can I truly love, and keep the piles for me? (1 John 3:17-18; James 2:15-17)

(Chorus)
