"Long Term Investments" Notes

I really did write this song the day after I talked to a financial advisor about IRAs, SEPs, Annuities, etc. Spending all this time learning about all the different ways to save reminded me of Jesus's words about storing up our treasures where the moth and rust won't destroy and thieves won't come in and steal. I think that financial planning is fine but would that we would put the energy into longer term investments

"Long Term Investments" Lyrics

  
My financial advisor came over last night 
And we talked about how we could save 
Two kids and college funds 
Break out the savings bonds 
Don't forget the 401K 
But I've got 
 
Long term investments 
Building up my treasure will the moth and rust won't go 
Long term investments 
Forget about annuities, banking on eternity 
Long term investments 
Building up my treasure will the moth and rust won't go 
 
My principle it is protected 
The highest interest is projected 
But you should know that yields expected 
But its comforting to know that Jesus saves 
 
I've got a savings account and I'm doing fine 
But my hope is in the one who turned water to wine 
He is still the greatest change machine 
 
And Iíve got 
Long term investments 
Building up my treasure will the moth and rust won't go 
Long term investments 
Forget about annuities, banking on eternity 
Long term investments 
Building up my treasure will the moth and rust won't go 
 
IRA and SEP 
Do not mean the same to me 
My 401K could go away 
But the love of my Savior is here to stay 
 
My financial advisor came over last night 
And we talked about how we could save 
Two kids and college funds 
Break out the savings bonds 
Don't forget the 401K 
But I've got 
 
Long term investments 
Building up my treasure will the moth and rust won't go 
Long term investments 
Forget about annuities, banking on eternity 
Long term investments 
Building up my treasure will the moth and rust won't go
