The most important thing I have

Is the key to my front door

It lets me in when I come home

It locks the world outside

It keeps me safe when I go to bed

It guards the entrance to my shed

I could not ask for more


The most important thing in life

Is the key that lets us live

That shows us how to understand

That keeps our moods under command

That forms our very character

That helps us to be brave


That key of life is given us

The Gospel of the Lord

And here today beatitudes

The Lord’s undiluted word

It opens up the world for us

It keeps us safe from harm

Go find this treasure for yourself

And find your soul’s true balm
