Lying, cheating, hurting and cruel
Never calming and overrun with fear
No courage, no safety for those we claim dear
Just another day of chaos and death
One day like another always without rest
This is the world at its best

I choose what I believe
My beliefs determine my behavior
Be careful how you think
Your life is shaped by your thoughts
Our thoughts can destroy us
It’s important that we know the truth

The world doesn’t have the truth
It has many ideas and beliefs
Formed by those who didn’t know the truth
Often saying they were simply trying to get by
This seemed like a good idea so they believed it
This is the world at its best

God is the only source of truth
He will be true even when the world is false
Our world is passing away
God is here to stay
Day by day we move closer to Him
Are we getting to know the One who is truth?

Mankind makes bad choices
When we come to Jesus we have made a good choice
He is truth and He will give us the truth
In Jesus we have eternal life and in Him we serve
Coming to Christ gives us peace with God
We are His children and He is our Father

Choose carefully what you believe
Read the Word and ask the Lord for wisdom
Day by day you will grow in knowledge
His Word will strengthen your soul and your life
A relationship with Jesus will transform you
Into the person you knew in your heart you could be
