I Choose Jesus

The following song has been on my mind the last few days – I thought I would share the lyrics on here this morning.

I Choose Jesus

Some say life is just a series of decisions…
We make choices, we live and learn…
Now I’m standing at a crossroad, and I must choose which way to turn…
Down one road lies all the world can offer, all it’s power, its wealth, and fame…
Down the other is just a Man, with nail scars in His hands…
But there is mercy in His eyes… There is power in His Name…

I choose Jesus… I choose Jesus…
without a solitary doubt, I choose Jesus…
Not for miracles, but for loving me…
Not for Bethlehem, but for Calvary…
Not for a day but for eternity… I choose Jesus…

All my life I sailed the sea of reason, I was captain of my soul… there was no leading of my Savior, I tried to do it on my own…
Then I heard Him speak the language of compassion, words of healing
for broken lives…
When they nailed him to a tree,
His love included me…
Now He is calling me to follow Him and leave the past behind…

I choose Jesus… I choose Jesus…
without a solitary doubt, I choose Jesus…
Not for miracles, but for loving me…
Not for Bethlehem, but for Calvary…
Not for a day but for eternity… I choose Jesus…

(Luke Garrett)
