Representative Text

1 The Savior and Satan, my brother,
Each offer a price for thy soul;
Desiring just now to possess it,
In order thy life to control.

Refrain:
Which bid, my brother?
Which bid, my brother?
Which bid are you going to take?
The Savior and Satan each offer,
Which bid are you going to take?

2 One offers thee riches alluring,
Which tempt thee to gratify pride;
The other to all His coworkers,
Permission to toil by His side. [Refrain]

3 One offers thee pleasures enticing,
Which satisfy carnal desires,
The other to lead up the pathway,
E’er sought by the soul that aspires. [Refrain]

4 One offers thee earthly enchantments,
In even exchange for thy soul;
The other His life-blood hath given,
With Heaven at last for thy goal. [Refrain]
