Song Description

Having Messiah on your side ,,, is better than having gold.

Story Behind the Song

I read a church bilbord that said "Jesus better than Money in the bank"... i meditated on that for several days before writing the song. If you have Jesus.... you have what you need no matter if you have little or much in the bank!!!

Fresh Gospel sound with a country flare. Well done. Sounds like Jason (one of the best voices and phrasing out there). Love the hook--amazing grace lavished on me. The more I listen, the more it sounds like a modern hymn--not an easy thing to do--Gospel/hymn like/country--so nice. all in 3:12--great. My only suggestion (just a suggestion) is, I am wondering if Messiah is too loaded for some listeners? Maybe just say Jesus...just a thought.

Better Than Gold
copyright 2009 Janet Steely

Verse 1:

Better than gold is Messiah to me.

In Him will i trust. My trust He will keep.

His precious Holy Spirit, my earnest guarantee

of promised rewards, waiting for me.


Oh the beauty of His faithful majesty

Wealthy love, boundless and free

Amazing grace lavished on me.

Verse 2:

Royal redemption, sacred Holy Blood.

Sin's debt fully paid by mercy's cleansing flood.

Costly and extravagant, priceless gift of love

for whosoever will. It is more than enough.


Oh the beauty of His faithful majesty

Wealthy love, boundless and free

Amazing grace lavished on me.


I am rich beyond measure in Messiah my treasure

Better than Gold is Messiah to me.
