Buried treasure

The kingdom of God is within you.
(Luke 17:21; KJV). 

1. You are the treasure
Buried within us:
You are our hidden hoard.

2. You are our pearl
Beyond all price:
You are our holy Lord.

3. So, may we all
Grow more like you,
Impossible though that seems,

4. For you are our God,
The only One
Who rescues, restores, and redeems.


He redeems me from death.
(Psalm 103:4; NLT).



1. The kingdom of heaven is like treasure, buried in a field, that a man found and reburied. Then in his joy he goes and sells everything he has and buys that field (Matthew 13:44; CSB).

There is …one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all (Ephesians 4:5-6; NLT).

We are the temple of the living God (2 Corinthians 6:16; NLT).

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty – the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come (Revelation 4:8; NLT).

3. You must be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy (Leviticus 19:2; NLT). 

We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him (Colossians 3:10; NLT). 

Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37; NLT).

4. You are our God (Hosea 2:23; NLT).

The Lord our God is the one and only Lord (Mark 12:29; NLT).

Surely he rescues me from all trouble (Psalm 54:7; NET). 

He restores my soul (Psalm 23:3; NKJV).
