Lyrics:

I went to visit the shrine of plenty
But found its storerooms all filled with dust
I bowed at altars of gold and silver
But as I knelt there, they turned to rust
So I’ll worship only at the feet of Jesus
His cup alone—my Holy Grail
They’ll be no other gods before Him
Just Jesus only will never fail
The call of fortune made me a pilgrim
To journey to fame’s promised heights
But as I climbed, the promise faded
And wind blew lonely all through the night
Just desert dust and empty shadow
All promises that turn to lie
The gods of earth fail and betray me
But You alone are Truth and Life
They’ll be no other gods before Him
Just Jesus only will never fail
