Lyrics

WHAT DOES IT PROFIT A MAN?

(Words and Music by Tennyson Walters)

 

Material possessions

And their obsessions

Consume the lives of many

It breeds indiscretions

Unholy connections

In the pursuit of plenty

You can’t sleep at night

Well that is the price

The toll that you pay

On vanity’s highway

 

What does it profit a man?

What does it profit a man?

To gain the whole world

But lose his own soul

When it unfurls

Cause his heart is so cold

Hell’s the only heat that he’ll know

Hell’s the only heat that he’ll know

 

Continue your compulsions

You’ll have convulsions

Spewing your life away

Change your direction

Relocate your affections

Know Jesus He is the Way

Wealth it is fleeting

Mentally depleting

Trying to stay ahead

Away from the red

  

What does it profit a man?

What does it profit a man?

To gain the whole world

But lose his own soul

When it unfurls

Cause his heart is so cold

Hell’s the only heat that he’ll know

Hell’s the only heat that he’ll know

 

OOOH OOOH Yeah Yeah

All these things that you see

Shall all one-day pass away

 

What does it profit a man?

What does it profit a man?

To gain the whole world

But lose his own soul

When it unfurls

Cause his heart is so cold

Hell’s the only heat that he’ll know

Hell’s the only heat that he’ll know (Repeat)
