He stood in the middle of forever,
Though he didn't understand at the time;
He had a very important decision to make
And he struggled to make up his mind.
Satan whispered, "Just stay here in Egypt,
Man, what have you got to lose?
There aren't any silly rules to obey,
You can do whatever you choose!"
But another voice spoke to his heart,
Saying, "You must flee that wicked land;
Run far away from the bondage of sin
And come to the Promised Land."
We're all in the middle of forever
And each one must make his own choice;
Do you want to spend your forever in hell,
Or will you listen to God's pleading voice?
It's only our time here on earth that will end,
And then the rest of forever begins;
So choose this day, before it's too late,
To spend the rest of forever with Him.

He who believes in the Son has everlasting life;
and he who does not believe the Son shall not
see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.
