Title: "Thoughts In Verse"
By George A. Wiens

SINCE YOU'RE STILL HERE


SINCE YOU'RE STILL HERE AND LIVING
YOUR LIVE FROM DAY TO DAY,
CONSIDER WHO IS GUIDING YOU
ALONE LIFE'S DAILY WAY.

IF "SATAN" IS YOUR LEADER,
THE ROAD MAY SEEM SO RIGHT.
TO SEE YOU PLAY AND FROLIC
IN SIN IS HIS DELIGHT.

OH, HE WILL NEVER TELL YOU
JUST WHERE HIS PATHWAY LEADS.
HE'LL LINE THE WAY WITH ROSES
TO HIDE THE DREADFUL WEEDS.

HE CAN ROB YOU OF GOD'S BLESSINGS,
AND GIVE YOU TOIL AND STRIFE,
BUT HE NEEDS GOD'S PERMISSION
TO TAKE AWAY YOUR LIFE.

GOD PUT YOU HERE ON PURPOSE.
HE HAS A TASK FOR YOU.
YOUR LIFE WILL NOT BE TAKEN
TILL HE, WITH YOU, IS THRU.

IF YOU HAVE NOT DECIDED
TO LET GOD GUIDE YOUR WAY,
HE MAY STILL CHOOSE TO USE YOU
IN SPITE OF WHAT YOU SAY.

IF YOU'RE STILL HERE AND LIVING
AND HAVE NOT TURNED TO HIM
AND SAID "YES, I WILL SERVE YOU",
THEN HEAVEN'S HOPES ARE DIM.

SINSE YOU'RE STILL HERE AND LIVING,
GOD STILL HAS WORK FOR YOU,
FOR YOU, TO HIM, WILL ANSWER
WHEN YOUR LIFE ON EARTH IS THRU.

THE CHOICE IS YOURS COMPLETELY.
WILL HE SMILE AND SAY "WELL DONE",
OE WILL HE SAY, SO SADLY,
YOU FOLLOW THE WRONG ONE.
