The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website

Riches That Start in the Heart


Alice C. Bateman

When I was a young girl
I dreamed I would be
A writer who'd travel the world

Now I am full grown
And the world has now shown
That it needs all the dreams of the girl

Of castles and princes
Of romance and kings
Of riches that start in the heart

Of smiles and laughter
And conquering sorrow
To seek out and follow our chart

We all have a purpose
We all have a choice
I've chosen to work on God's side

And if I were you
I'd make that choice too
And with it forever abide
