Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell (Joshua 24:15)

But you’re going to have to serve somebody, yes indeed
You’re going to have to serve somebody
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you’re going to have to serve somebody (Bob Dylan, “You Gotta Serve Somebody,” Slow Train Coming, 1979. listen below*)

Choose This Day

Dark to dark or light to light 

Which do you prefer?

Trouble alley or pearly gates 

Which is the allure?

You might be a Boomer 

Or a Generation X

Maybe a Millenial 

Or a “Z” that’s comin’ up next

But you better choose this day

The path you’ll go along

And I would not delay because

The choice may soon be gone.

Is hate to hate or love to love 

The place in which you roam?

Is it Eden lost or paradise found 

The place that you’ll call home?

Is it a prison of pain you’re lookin’ for

Or a place of eternal rest?  

Well now’s the time to make up your mind

Which one will suit you best?

But you better choose this day

The path you’ll go along

And I would not delay because

The choice may soon be gone.

Is it Hell or is it Heaven

At the end of your days?

Do you follow that old liar 

Or the Life the Truth and Way?

Have you had enough of rage

Of fear, deception, and blues?

Or is it time to open your ears

And hear some better news?

But you better choose this day

The path you’ll go along

And I would not delay because

The choice may soon be gone.

Have you had yourself enough

Of arguments and strife?

Have you had yourself enough

Of raging in the night?

Do you pray for something else

To truly set you free?

How about the sacrifice

Of the Man from Galilee?

But you better choose this day

The path you’ll go along

And I would not delay because

The choice may soon be gone.

You might think you’re holy now

Sittin’ in that pew

You might think you have arrived 

In your BM double-U

You might think your headed to Heav’n

On someone else’s dime

But it’s you alone who makes the choice

If you still have some time

But you better choose this day

The path you’ll go along

And I would not delay because–

The choice may soon be gone.

 

And I would not delay because

The choice may soon be gone.
