Should I bother where my soul will go?
WHITHER MY SOUL



I don’t know my station in life
In this world or in the next world.
I squandered my days in pursuit
Of pleasure and not of His word.

Shall He chastise me for my sin
Or shall He be benevolent?
Shall He lift me up in His arms?
Shall punishment be His intent?

Should I ponder at this at all?
Is this not really His task?
It is for Him to judge my fate.
I should not any favour ask.

He is the one who gives to all
Without asking, what they deserve.
Our task is to do our duty,
Which is to but selflessly serve.
