Song background:

This song was written in 2011 for the Chelemes Ward Young Women Camp. It correlates with two themes - the youth theme that year, which centered on the 13th article of faith, and the theme for the camp, which was treasures. For much of the camp, we talked about spiritual treasures we should seek. But as I sought inspiration for the song, I was overwhelemed by the idea that we are treasures of our Heavenly Father - we are His  treasures! And that is what this song is about.

Lyrics: Once upon a time, in a place I can’t recall <br/>Our Heav’nly Father told us <br/>Of a plan to save us all <br/>We would come to earth, be tested <br/>And we’d prove ourselves to Him <br/>And with our Savior’s love, we could live with God again. <br/> <br/>Verse 2: <br/>So now here I am <br/>In a place where I must choose <br/>If I will take the narrow way <br/>Or if sin will blind my view <br/>And though sometimes I have struggled, <br/>I have come to understand <br/>My Savior’s done his part, <br/>Now the choice is in my hands. <br/> <br/>Chorus: <br/>I am a daughter of a Heav’nly King <br/>And I will seek things of eternity <br/>I will seek honesty and virtue <br/>Benevolence and truth. <br/>I’ll seek out righteousness in everything I do. <br/>Verse 3: <br/>There are many things of value <br/>Wealth and pride and pow’r, <br/>But none of these will come with us when we leave this world of ours <br/>So I will choose the things of sacredness. <br/>I’ll choose God and family. <br/>And I will seek the temple blessings waiting for me. <br/> <br/>[Repeat Chorus] <br/> <br/>Verse 4: <br/>When this life is over <br/>All my treasures have been won <br/>I’ll stand before my Father <br/>And present him with all I’ve done. <br/>I imagine that he’ll hold me <br/>In his arms, his precious child, <br/>And he’ll say, “Thank you for these treasures, but you, you are my treasure.” <br/>I am his treasure! <br/> <br/>Final Chorus <br/>I am a daughter of my Heav’nly King, <br/>And I will seek things of eternity. <br/>I will be honest, virtuous, benevolent and true. <br/>I will be righteous in everything I do. <br/> <br/>I’ll seek eternity in everything I do! <br/>
