She listened and watched and carefully read
The lines on the maps and what they said.
Her journey would be long and dangerous too—
But her ship was sturdy. She had a good crew.
The Captain was strong and quite supreme.
The crew called him Master, and on him did lean.
The treasures she sought were values of worth,
Values of strength and character, too!
She needed those maps, the Captain and crew
To show her which way her treasure lay.
For the treasure she seeks, she will surely find
Not diamonds or rubies—Not the earthly kind.
But virtue and honor will be her quest
As she lives worthily and faces each test.
To know her captain is Jesus Christ,
And thank him for showing the way that is right.
The maps are the words of scripture and light.
The crew is her family given to help in the fight--
Against the waves of sin and storms of lies
She must journey through to reach the far side.
Yes, she listened and watched and carefully read
The lines on the maps and where they lead.
