Verse One:

Men strive for the wealth of this wide wicked world....
They seek after honor and fame....
So lavishly sporting their diamonds and pearls.....
They put the dear Savior to shame....

The Chorus:

I'd rather live in that bright city....
Than to own all earth's silver and gold....
I'd rather have Jesus my Savior....
Than the diamonds of a palace to hold......

I'd rather be....just a poor beggar.....
Live in a little shack by the road......
Than to own all earth's treasures.....
With no title to a future abode.....

Verse Two:

They seem not to know that their treasures will rust...
And thieves often break through and steal....
Contented with pleasure...they follow their lust...
With sorrow their destiny seal....

Verse Three:

What profit is found in earth's silver and gold........
How sad at the close of life's day....
If for the exchange one must lose his own soul.....
From Heaven's door be turned away....

The Chorus:

I'd rather live in that bright city....
Than to own all earth's silver and gold....
I'd rather have Jesus my Savior....
Than the diamonds of a palace to hold......

I'd rather be....just a poor beggar.....
Live in a little shack by the road......
Than to own all earth's treasures.....
With no title to a future abode.....

Than to own all earth's treasures.....
With no title to a future abode.....
