Representative Text

1 How oft across life’s narrow path
As on we tread the way,
There comes to us the still, small voice,
“Give me your heart today.”

Refrain:
Decide for Jesus, decide for Jesus,
No longer make delay;
Decide for Jesus, decide for Jesus,
Make this decision day.

2 O who will make the stand this day,
To take the path of right?
His ways are paths of love and peace,
The end is joy and light. [Refrain]

3 The pleadings often you have heard,
The Saviour calls you: “come,”
Return, tho’ far you are astray,
Your footsteps turn to “home.” [Refrain]

4 The word allures with promise vain,
Yet death the end must be,
But sweet the life our Saviour gives,
It lasts eternally. [Refrain]
