CHOOSE

There comes a time in every ones life,

When we must chose a road to follow.

There comes a time in every ones life,

When we must choose to sacrifice.

There comes a time in every ones life,

When we must choose a God to follow;

We make gods of wood and iron

And we make gods of silver and gold

But only the Lord God can rain down fire.

 

If the Lord be God serve Him

Ort is Baal be God Serve Him

But only the Lord God can rain down fire

That will destroy this alter and it’s idols.

 

I remember a man named Elijah

While he stood there on the mountain side

He built himself an alter;

Then he said these fateful words;

He said: choose you this day who you will serve,

Choose you this day who you will follow

But don’t wait too long for it will be too late

When the Lord starts to rain down fire.

 

If the Lord be God serve Him

Ort is Baal be God Serve Him

But only the Lord God can rain down fire

That will destroy this alter and it’s idols.

 

Well, the alter is the world and the idols are material gain.

Can your money buy salvation?

Can your cloths hide sin stain?

Will your friends be there when you need

Them to heal the sick or raise the dead,

When the Lord starts to rain down fire.

 

If the Lord be God serve Him

Ort is Baal be God Serve Him

But only the Lord God can rain down fire

That will destroy this alter and it’s idols.

 

So choose you this day who you will serve.

Choose you this day who you will follow

But don’t wait too long for it will be too late

When the Lord starts to rain down fire.
