House of Gold

Kennon's picture
House of Gold

People steal, they cheat and lie
For wealth and what it will buy
Don’t they know on the judgement day
Gold and silver will melt away

I’d rather be in a deep, dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and lose my soul

What good is gold and silver, too
If your heart’s not good and true
Sinner hear me when I say
Fall down upon your knees and pray

I’d rather be in a deep, dark grave
And know that my poor soul was saved
Than to live in this world in a house of gold
And deny my God and lose my soul
And deny my God and lose my soul

Isn’t this old Hank Williams song so true of people of the United states today. Everyone wants to be in a house of Gold no matter what. I am afraid the consequences are great.
