Ponder the Path of Thy Feet
We choose who we emulate; we choose the one we will love.
Will it be our Savior and our loving Father above?
Subtle are the distractions that take us from our Lord.
Clever is the enemy with his deliberate tempting words.
Yet we have the power to shun his every dart,
We can heed the Master and faithfully do our part.
Will we choose the enemy who seeks to destroy our soul?
Will we give way to temptation and help him reach his goal?
Oh this precious gift of agency that we chose in heaven above;
Now we stand and use it, and through it show our love.
Each day we add or take away from the light that is our own;
We add a little or lose a little depending on the way we go.
Will our feet move forward toward our Savior and friend?
Or will we take a side road that leads to a darker end?
Will we cherish the scriptures and honor what they say?
Or will we follow the adversary and his will obey?
Be wise my fellow traveler and emulate your Lord,
Come to Him in meekness and heed His every word.
He has paid the price for every soul that lives,
He will ransom and save us, if we accept the gift he gives.
Wise is the child who loves their Savior and friend.
For they will partake of eternal life and have joy that never ends!
