This Song is about True Riches.

The Life that our Creator has given us, and how we choose to spend it. To me the answer is summed up in what The Bible calls Wisdom. It was while reading my daily portion of the book of Proverbs that this song was inspired.

Proverbs 8:34 (N.I.V.)
“Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily ay my doors, waiting at my doorway”.

Jesus also sums it up when He tells us to “store up for yourselves treasure in heaven where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal”. Mathew 6: 19 – 20 (N.I.V.)

An old acquaintance of mine got me in the habit of reading a chapter of Proverbs once a day in keeping with the days of the month. It is a practice I would recommend to anyone.


Fill me up, make me whole
Side to side, to and fro
Heal my mind Lord bless my soul
Fill me up, make me whole

I can’t sing about my silver, I wont sing about the gold
Cause there’s rust on the hinges of the door where it’s hid
And it aint goanna save my soul


Spend my life in minutes, spend my life in days
Spend my life in the thoughts that I think, living’ in the words that I say
Sow, reap, harvest to keep, precious stones, wood, stubble, hay
Oh the waters on the rise, and there’s fire in His eyes
But today is the day that His mercy has made
Today is the day that His mercy has made
I can’t help but sing for the day that He’s made


Blessed is the man, who waits at Your gate
Early in the morning before it’s to late
Taking a hold, and not letting go
Praying fill me up Lord make me whole

Teach my feet to walk Your ways
Make my mind to search and pray
Bread for the hungry, wine for the thirst
Last things last and first things first

Only the eyes of a man may I hold
As I wade through the dross help me search for the gold
Brothers and sisters each and every one
It’s a labor of love for a Kingdom to come
