Full Text

1 “Choose ye this day whom you will serve.”
Hear ye not the Lord’s command?
Ever along the way of life,
You will need a guiding hand.

Refrain:
Choose ye this day,
Choose ye this day,
Choose ye this day whom ye will serve;
As for me and my house will serve the Lord,
Choose ye, O choose ye whom you will serve.

2 “Choose ye this day whom you will serve.”
Many snares like all around;
Pleasures of earth will oft beguile,
Climb above to higher ground. [Refrain]

3 “Choose ye this day whom you will serve.”
Make the Lord indeed your King;
Faint not nor falter, press ahead,
To the cross of Calv’ry cling. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest.
