Choice


Today I have given you the choice between life and death (Deuteronomy 30:19; NLT).

1. Lord,
You give us all
A choice:
To follow you,
Or walk away.

2. Lord,
You give us all
A choice:
To stay with you,
Or to betray.

3. Lord,
You give us all
A choice:
To ask forgiveness,
Or refuse.

4. Lord,
You give us all
A choice:
To love our neighbour,
Or abuse.
