Acres of Diamonds

There are acres of diamonds
And oceans of gold
Rivers of honey,
And riches untold
There's no need to go hungry
Or scrabble for more
There are acres of diamonds
Right outside your door

This world full of sorrow
Pays a low wage of sin
Men beg, steal and borrow
And cheat their own kin
Some search the world over
For fortune and fame
Without understanding
That we all lose that game


The good Lord He gives us
Everything that we need
The fruits in the orchard
And the air that we breathe
The fish in the ocean
And the plant in the seed
There's no need for envy
There's no need for greed


What good is your money
When it comes time to die
And fly up to that mansion
On the clouds in the sky?
There's a life beyond living
In a land beyond time
No taking, just giving
No more yours and mine
