“Comes the Moment to Decide” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).
Lyrics: Bouck White.
Tune: “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”
Once to every man and nation
Comes the moment to decide
In the strife of truth with falsehood
For the good or evil side.
Some great cause, God’s new messiah,
Offers each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever
’Twixt the darkness and the light.
Then, to side with truth is noble,
When we share her wretched crust,
Ere her cause bring fame and profit,
And ’tis prosp’rous to be just.
Then, it is the brave man chooses,
While the coward stands aside,
Till the multitude make virtue
Of the faith they had denied.
Though the cause of evil prosper,
Yet ’tis truth alone is strong;
Though her portion be the scaffold,
And upon the throne be wrong.
Yet that scaffold sways the future,
And behind the dim unknown
Standeth One within the shadow
Keeping watch above His own.
