God is offering life today,
If you would just trust and obey;
The Lord is giving you a choice,
Life or death elected by voice.
Not a command rather to choose,
Which do you want to win or lose?
For today have joys and sorrow,
Or have a joyous tomorrow.
Confess and the Lord will forgive,
If you want to then you will live;
And your hostilities will cease,
As your family will increase.
The Lord will bless you in the land,
A fertile holding where you stand;
That you are about to enter,
With God being as your mentor.
But your heart just might turn away,
And you start by going astray;
If you no longer want to hear,
And of God you no longer fear.
Then the Lord will surely condemn,
Of other gods worshipping them;
Punishment given for your crime,
Living with a very short time.
God calls upon earth and Heaven,
To witness of the choice given;
Offering the blessing or curse,
Or if you are pure or perverse.
