WHAT DO YOU WISH TO BE?


(Picture, courtesy of Faye Faye Scott Heffington.)
 
Had you rather be the carrion
That is hunted from the sky?
Or the graceful soaring vulture
That has a sharp seeing eye?

 Satan is the vulture!
And he's busy every day.
The sinful world's his helper,
In a big and frightful way!

We may also be his helper
If we don't know what to do;
The world is calling to us...
But the Bible's calling too!

Jesus calls us to be faithful,
And to always look to Him;
But our sinful nature calls
And we give in to our whims.

Oh you might not know the difference
In the places you have lived;
If you do not read and study
What the Good Lord has to give.

So be alive and ready
To meet Him in the sky;
'Cause we do want to be ready...
When it is our time to die!
