house of gold
people steal, they cheat and lie
for wealth and what it will buy
don’t they know on the judgment day
that their 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 doom my soul
what good is gold and silver too
when your heart’s not good and true?
sinner, hear me when i say
fall down on your knees and pray
