1. All that I counted as gain now I consider as loss,
empty and worthless to me in the light of the love of the Lord.

2. Riches and honors will fade, earthly delight disappear,
fade like the grass of the field in the light of the love of the Lord. 

REFRAIN
What more could bring us hope than to know the pow'r of his life? 
What more could bring us peace than to share in his suff'ring and death?
What more could be our final wish than to live in the love of the Lord?


3. Silver and gold have I none, no land to count as my home,
yet wealth beyond measure I own in the light of the love of the Lord.

4. Faith is the wealth I possess. Finding its source in my God:
faith in the promise of Christ is my life and my love of the Lord. 

REFRAIN
What more could bring us hope...
