LET GOD BE YOUR GUIDE


THE COURSE OF LIFE CAN BE LONG AND ROUGH.
THE TRAPS AND SNARES MAY HIDE.
TO SAFELY ARRIVE AT THE END OF THE ROAD,
YOU MUST SIMPLY LET ''GOD'' BE YOUR GUIDE.

''SATAN'' WILL TEMP YOU WITH FALSE PROMISES
OR RICHES, AND FRIENDS BY YOUR SIDE.
BUT THESE ARE ALL EMPTY SOON AFTER RECEIVED,
BECAUSE YOU DID NOT LET ''GOD'' BE YOUR GUIDE.

''GOD'' SENT US A ROAD MAP IN THE FORM OF HIS SON,
WHO IS WILLING TO WALK BY YOUR SIDE.
HE KNOWS ALL THE PITFALLS, THE TOILS, AND THE SNARES,
ALL HE ASKS IS TO LET ''HIM'' BE THE GUIDE.

FAME AND FORTUNE, AND A BIG FANCY HOUSE,
AND A BIG CAR IN WHICH YOU MAY RIDE,
MAY BE ''SATAN'S'' WEAPON TO LURE YOU HIS WAY,
AS HE ASKED YOU TO LET ''HIM'' BE YOUR GUIDE.

''SATAN'' CAN BUT OFFER YOU RICHES, THEN DEATH,
IF YOU LET HIM WIN YOU TO HIS SIDE,
BUT ''CHRIST'' OFFERS LIFE AND HEAVEN'S JOYS,
IF YOU'LL ONLY LET ''GOD'' BE YOUR GUIDE.

YOUR LIFE IS JUST STARTING DOWN HERE ON THIS EARTH,
YOU DETERMINE WITH WHOM YOU'LL ABIDE.
ETERNITY AWAITS YOU, A LIFE WITH NO END,
WILL YOU LET ''SATAN'' OR ''GOD'' BE YOUR GUIDE.
