Full Text

1 Some folk would rather have houses and land.
Some folk choose silver and gold.
These things they treasure and forget about their soul;

Refrain:
I’ve decided to make Jesus my choice.
The road is rough, the going gets tough,
and the hills are hard to climb,
I’ve started out a long time ago,
there’s no doubt in my mind;
I’ve decided to make Jesus my choice.

2 These clothes may be ragged that I’m wearing.
Heavy is the load that I’m bearing
These old burdens that I’m carrying (refrain)
