A Matter Of Choice Poem by James Donovan

A Matter Of Choice



When the roll is called up yonder;
when my earthly life is oe'r; will my soul go straight to hell,
or will I pass through heaven's door?

If If'm faithful to God's scripture,
and use the Bible as a tool,
will God grant me entrance?
Will the Devil say I've been a fool?

If I give praise to God's creation
bow my head and humbly pray
or give in to some vile temptation,
will Satan finally have his way?

When I prepare to meet my maker
will God recognize my face;
or will old Lucifer be waiting
to snatch my soul; to take God's place?

This is the choice we have been given.
Free will is always ours to choose.
My only hope for my salvation
is that His gifts were not abused.

I hope my life has pleasured God
And he will gladly welcome me
Before the Devil knows I'm dead.
God grant me your eternity.
