329. I've Decided to Make Jesus My Choice

1 Some folk would rather have houses and land.
Some folk choose silver and gold.
These things they treasure and forget about their souls;
I’ve decided to make Jesus my choice.

Refrain:
The road is rough; the going gets tough,
and the hills are hard to climb.
I’ve started out a long time ago,
there’s no doubt in my mind;
I’ve decided to make Jesus my choice.

2 These clothes may be ragged that I’m wearing.
Heavy is the load that I’m bearing;
These old burdens that I’m carrying
I’ve decided to make Jesus my choice. [Refrain]
