Lyrics:

I dwell in a land of rich prosperity, I live in a home of warmth and beauty,

I have hope in a future full of possibility, My cup, Lord, is filled and overflows.

Yet, I know, Lord, I know with surety these comforts and things can become a snare to me

I know, Lord, that in peace and security temptation awaits me there…

 

To forget You, to forget the One from Whom all blessings flow,

To neglect You, to neglect the One to Whom my love I owe,

To forsake You, to forsake the One Who is the Giver of all.

Let not prosperity so easily distract me from devotion, from devotion to You.

 

As I daily feast on food from my table, as I shelter myself in a home strong and stable,

As I work with the strength that God has enabled, I’m reminded, so soon reminded…

That in a land that flowed with milk and honey, in a time that was free, was free from hostility,

When harvest fields would yield its plenty, it was then, God’s people went astray.

 

And they forgot You, they forgot the One from Whom all blessings flow.

They ignored You, they ignored the One to Whom their love they owed.

They forsook You, they forsook the One Who is the Giver of all.

They let prosperity so easily distract them from devotion, from devotion to You.

 

Let me cautiously walk in this land of prosperity – my mind and my heart, let me guard so attentively,

For no human soul can possess double loyalty, l live for God, or I live for money.

Let me thank You, Lord, for every blessing, let me loosely hold to every possession.

Let me purpose in my soul that my one and only passion is to know You, to love You!

 

I want to thank You, I want to thank the One from Whom all blessings flow!

I want to love You, I want to love the One to Whom my love I owe!

I want to know You, I want to know the One Who is the Giver of all!

Let not prosperity so easily distract me from devotion, from devotion to You.
