Eden R. Latta


Servants of Sa­tan or of the Lord,
Doing their will ev­er are we;
Death is ap­proach­ing—which will ye serve?
Choose ye to­day whose ye will be.


Jesus in­vites you now to be His,
Satan would ev­er lead you as­tray;
Flee from his pow­er before ’tis too late,
Turn to the Lord to­day,

Trust not to Sa­tan, vain is his word;
All of his paths lead to dis­may;
Flee from his bond­age—turn to the Lord;
Which will ye serve? choose ye to­day.


Lay up your trea­sure not on the earth;
Naught ’twill avail when life is past;
Like un­to Ma­ry, choose ye the Lord;
Serve Him in truth un­to the last.


Sinner, the Sav­ior asks you to come;
Do not re­fuse—do not delay;
Jesus has suf­fered—suf­fered for you;
Give Him your hearts—choose Him to­day.
