Oh wondrous day when Thee I chose When mercy reached my deepest woes
Oh wondrous day when Thee I chose When mercy reached my deepest woes And I in sorrow clung to Thee To save my soul eternally! My choice was made–the battle won With past–with sin–forever done!
And yet each day I make a choice As silently I hear Thy voice So tender saying, ‘whose art thou?’ In this small matter wilt thou bow?
The bed seems oh so warm and sweet Another sleep ‘fore Him I meet Ah then I’m robbed of inner power I choose to miss that ‘sacred hour’!
At school I choose to linger near When dirty words I know I’ll hear Or else I turn and run away So that my heart can purer stay
At work I choose to compromise And drift along with wrong and lies Or else I stand for truth and right Although it is a harder fight
I find the world doth beckon me To places I should never be And I must choose to walk alone If I would reach that ‘Higher Home’
Temptation comes to me each day To lead me from the narrow way And I must ever cling to Him TO KEEP MY CHOICES FREE FROM SIN.
