Daniel B. Towner


We are the treasures of Christ the King;
Jesus has given us each good thing;
Voices to sing for Him songs of praise,
Feet to run willingly in His ways.


We are the treasures of Christ the King,
Happy that we of His love may sing;
All of our powers to Him will we bring;
We are the treasures of Christ the King.

Boys who are manly, and pure and true,
Girls who are happy and useful, too,
Through all the powers that God has giv’n,
Make earth an Eden and home a heav’n.


We are His treasures; our hands and heart,
Placed in His keeping, must do their part;
He will employ all our powers each day,
We will serve Jesus in work and play.
