Treasure Told


Tune: Old Yeavering

('Like a mighty river flowing')

Matthew 13 .52


Every scribe who is instructed

By the Lord, and by His word led

He/She called scholar of old, writing

Of the Lord's ways in each thing


Instructed unto the kingdom

Of heaven, and God's will be done

They are like people with rich store

Of treasure for evermore


Treasure old and new they have sure

Rich in the things of God, not poor

having things new and old to show

In prosperity they grow


Delve deeper into treasure chest

Though it all counted as the best

Or the top layers of the new

Things recently added too

  • Comment from author about the poem: a hymn-poem in metre. The thought in the last verse is of a treasure-chest with newer treasures on the top, and older treasures further down, having been put into the chest first.

        Thanks Gold. You got any, erm, gold in your treasure chest? Or any gold about in 1066? I'm getting obsessed by the Reunion. lol. Any sand at Hastings? We could go metal-detecting.
