One Thing Only

Jesus: “Mary.”

Mary: “Raboni.”

“There is need of one thing only,

Mary has chosen the better part,

And it will not be taken from her.”

When moths and rust corrupt,

What will be left?

When thieves break in and steal?

What cannot be taken from you?

Moment by moment we are choosing.

The final choice is our eternity.

When He calls your name,

How will you choose?

Will you recognize Him,

Who loves you unto eternity?
