The Choice Is Yours - Poem by Gladys Brown Prince

In life we make choices every day
Hoping things will come our way
We choose to go to bed day or night
And wake up when the morning is light
Choose to eat a meal for health and strength
And for this we would go to any length

Yet when the choice about our hearts
Confronts us by the words impart
We resist them from the very start
With words like go away I'll have no part
The preacher we see coming in his car
He is bringing us words from far

But the choice is ours we can't ignore
Or it will grieve us before life is o'er
Choices we make which keep us awake
Will let us know we made a mistake
We did not do our best yet we seek rest
When doing our duty God requires our best

Make Christ your choice the preacher's advice
In Him rejoice and seek no more to devise
At your heart's door He waits to explore
It is your soul the Lord is seeking to secure
Choose to be strong not selfish or weak
Let us be humble and serve with the meek

Whatever you do just know this is true
Make Him your choice for He is sure
All our cares He will with us share
And we will never be lonely down here
Let's give Him our best He'll do the rest
Good choices made will gain us sweet rest
