12. Treasure Of Jesus

All Things New
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

What can I do
How can I live
To show my world
The treasure of Jesus

What will it take
What could I give
So they can know
The treasure He is

And if I can sing
Let my song
Be full of His glory
If I can speak
Let my words be full of His grace
And if I should live or die
Let me be found
Pursuing this prize
The One that alone satisfies
The treasure of Jesus

And if I can sing
Let my songs
Be full of His glory
If I can speak
Let all my words be full of His grace
And if I should live or die
Let me be found
Pursuing this prize
The One that along satisfies
The treasure of Jesus

Behind the Song:
"This song was inspired by reading the book by John Piper “Don’t Waste Your Life,” a song that is the end thought, the exclamation point at the end of this record. It’s always the way I write albums. I always want to have an opening song that says, “This is where I want to take you on the journey,” and then a closing song that says, “Let’s ponder together everything we have heard.” It really isn’t only a closing prayer for the album but the closing prayer of my life. This is the prayer I want to be true of my whole life. It is the desire of my heart with this whole recording, and with all that I do with the music, that I do ultimately to the glory of God. To show to the world, let the world around me know, what a treasure I found in my relationship with Jesus Christ." - Steven Curtis Chapman
