Hearses don't pull trailers,
loaded with earthly treasures
they don't tow your worth
and your worldly measures.
They don't carry the living,
and their prized possessions
they only bring along a coffin
and lead the graveside procession.
You can't take it with you,
all you've acquire will turn to rust
and what you adore and cherish
will be left behind in the dust.
You can't haul away your stuff,
there's no place in heaven for it
and one day all you own and love
you will have to let go and forfeit.
There is no trailer hitch,
attached to that black hearse
but you can lay up your treasures
if you read and apply God's verse.
So don't cling on to the things,
that have no heavenly reward
let go of them long before you die
and God will give you His award!
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on
earth, where moth and rust destroy and
where thieves break in and steal; but lay
up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where
neither moth nor rust destroys and where
thieves do not break in and steal. For where
your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
