819. Choose the Living Way

1. The voice that shook the mountains
and covered them with smoke,
From cloud and fiery pillar
His great commandment spoke:
I call the earth and heaven
as witness here today
Before you now are life and death;
Now choose the living way.

2. “The law of sweet, abundant life
engraved by God on stone
Will lead you to the living Word
and make you all His own.
Obey and seek the blessing
and shun the cursed way:
Before you now are life and death;
Now choose the living way.

3. “If you will love the Lord your God
and listen to His voice,
The generations after you
forever will rejoice!
His beautiful commandment
will give you length of days.
Before you now are life and death;
Now choose the living way.

4. I am the God of Jacob,
yes Isaac’s God I Am,
By everlasting covenant,
the God of Abraham.
Hold fast to My strong promise:
Your life is in My praise!
Before you now are life and death;
Now choose the living way.
