Version:

Rags to riches is my song
I had nothing in this world
But You filled my empty cup
And You healed my wayward soul
Rags to riches is my song

I cannot boast in worldly gain
Like dust to dust it will soon fade away
But I will boast in You alone
Lord Jesus Christ my wealth my all

A child of mercy I've become
You're rich in love and I was so poor
All that seemed profit was but loss
I've traded all for this pearl of price
