Representative Text

1 In the books of the Lord the angels record,
What we think and say and do;
All the good of each life, the sin and the strife,
O what are they writing for you?

Refrain:
O what are they writing for you?
O what are they writing for you?
Be your page foul or fair;
You must face it up there,
O what are they writing, writing for you?

2 All your sin and your stain must ever remain,
Unless you begin anew;
And the record shall say, “The Christ is his way,”
O what are they writing for you? [Refrain]

3 Do you work with your might to build up the right,
And be helpful all day through?
Or the book there will show you shirked here below?
O what are they writing for you? [Refrain]

4 Now, my brother, be brave, seek Christ who can save,
And to Him be ever true;
Then the angels will write, “Redeemed by His might,”
O what are they writing for you? [Refrain]
