Remedies for the Spirit
 
 

A Rich Man

 

A rich man counts his blessings and has the heart to see

            His wealth measured in love from friends and family.

 

He’ll spend that love in heaven where love is valued so.

            He’ll purchase all he wants and needs to help his spirit grow.

 

So much wasted time and thought on matters that amount to naught-

            The only thing of worth: love gained here on earth.

 

A rich man counts his blessings and has the mind to know

            All that really matters is the love you give and show.

 

He’ll spend that love in heaven where love is valued so.

            He’ll travel places made by God where milk and honey flow.

 

So much wasted time and thought on matters that amount to naught-

            The only thing of worth: love gained here on earth.

 

A rich man counts his blessings and has eyes to behold

            The only asset blessed by God and worth its weight in gold.

 

He’ll spend that love in heaven where love is valued so.

            He’ll rise to heights of power and help the souls below.

 

So much wasted time and thought on matters that amount to naught-

            The only thing of worth: love gained here on earth.
