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.
