"I had won all I could win, there was no place I hadn't been, but my heart was needy and poor." Someone played this song in a chat room. Do you know who wrote it?

The words and music are by Bill and Gloria Gaither. Here are the lyrics:

1.
I had won all I could win, there was no place I hadn't been
But my heart was so needy and so poor
Then, I heard Him gently say, "Lose it all and find my way."
So, I gave it up, and found it all and more
 
Chorus:
I lost it all, to find everything, I died a pauper, to become a king
When I learned how to lose, I found out how to win
Oh, I lost it all to find everything
 
2.
I was frantic to survive, I was racing to arrive
And I walked on, any standing in my way
Then, I watched my schemes all die and realized that I
Could find new life, because the old had died that day

do you have a tape to purchase of just the music ( I guess it is called accompanment)  and not a voice so I could ask someone to sing a specila, it is just beautiful.
