If I could have the world and all it owns
A thousand kingdoms, a thousand thrones
If all the earth were mine to hold
With wealth my only goal

I'd spend my gold on selfish things
 Without the love that Your life brings 
Just a little bit more is all I'd need
Till life was torn from me

I'd rather be in the palm of Your hand
 Though rich or poor I may be
 Faith can see right through the circumstance 
Sees the forest in spite of the trees 
Your grace provides for me

If I should walk the streets, no place to sleep 
No faith in promises You keep
I'd have no way to buy my bread 
With a bottle for my bed

But if I trust the one who died for me
Who shed His blood to set me free
If I live my life to trust in You
Your grace will see me through 

I'd rather be in the palm of Your hand
 Though rich or poor I may be
 Faith can see right through the circumstance 
Sees the forest in spite of the trees 

If I could have the world...
If I could have the world and all it owns
