I saved a lot of money my fortune was untold
And like a fool I idealized my silver and my gold

My earthly treasure's mounted but when I counted through
I realized the treasure I had overlooked was you

My treasure unmeasured but forsaken of the treasures that come from above
My treasure unmeasured but it don't hold a heart of the one that I love

If I had my life before me if I could see it all
I'd stake my claim on things that are secured against downfall

I'd work for earthly treasures like any man would do
But I set my sights much higher and I'd be sure that I had you

My treasure unmeasured but forsaken of the treasures that come from above
My treasure unmeasured but it don't hold a heart of the one that I love
