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.

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]
