Title: What We Choose to Be
Meter: 6 6 6 6 D
Topic: agency, choice, time

1.
When this life meets its end
We won’t regret our deeds,
If we were a good friend
Who sought to others needs

Who always chose kindness
And spoke with gentle tone.
Who fought against blindness
That leaves others alone.

2.
When this life’s day is done,
In heav’n you shall not lack,
If self-control has won,
You held temptation back.

Your time you did not waste
Nor did your talent hide.
Your thoughts and actions were chaste,

And true you did abide.

3.
When this life’s hour has passed
And soon you then must hear
An accounting to the last
Of how you chose to live.

You surely then will cry
The chance that you have now
are to harken and be why,
Before God humbly bow.
