Some folks would rather have houses and land,
some folks choose silver and gold,
these things they treasure and forget about their souls;
I've decided to make Jesus my choice.
The road is rough,
the going gets tough,
and the hills are hard to climb.
I started out a long time ago,
there's no doubt in my mind;
I have decided to make Jesus my choice.
These clothes may be ragged that I'm wearing,
heavy is the load that I'm bearing,
these burdens that I'm carrying;
I've decided to make Jesus my choice
