Losing the World

[youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=ACJ5xENe7bs]

This is a great unreleased song by Shane & Shane

 

I was in search for treasure
Searching the fields of pleasure
Sifting through gold ands 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 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)
What would I hold on to anything but only You

Bridge:
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?

 

“What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?
Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?”
Matthew 16:26
