Gaining Jesus, Losing the World

Courtesy of the worship team at CCUC, they allowed this recording of one of my favorite songs (I didn’t write it).

Enjoy!

I was in search for treasure
searching in fields of pleasure
sifting through gold and silver
Oh what I found is better..
I was in search for fine pearls
I was in search for gaining the world
drinking from cisterns broken
I saw you and I sold it all…


I could gain the world
and lose my soul
I could gain the whole wide world
But what would it matter?

I’d give the world to be with You (Won’t you tell me…)
Why would I hold on to anything but only You?
Oh why would I hold on (no reason)
Why would I hold on (no reason)
Why would I hold on (no reason)
Why would I hold on (no reason)
Why would I hold on?
