Meter: 10 8 10 8
Topic: obedience, righteousness

1.
The cost of righteousness is not too high
In the light of what we receive.
We must not achieve perfection, but try
To act on all that we believe.

2.
The cost of righteousness looks very small
When compared to all God’s treasures.
He gives us that which has worth above all
Much fairer than earthly pleasures.

3.
The cost of righteousness still must be paid,
Though simple and clear be the way.
God’s loving commandments must be obeyed.
Before God’s great wealth can display.
