“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…” (Matthew 5:44)

Choose love, My child,
No matter what may,
Choose love, little one,
Throughout your day,

Choose love faithfully
When all is awry,
Choose love surely
When you find yourself cry,

Yes, choose love
Through joy and pain,
Through mountains and valleys,
Through sunshine and rain,

Through each gain,
Through each defeat,
Through times of loss,
Through victory sweet.

No matter what comes
Let love be your choice,
Let it be the reason
Your heart does rejoice,

Let it be sunshine
To wash away the rain,
The brilliant beams
To melt the pain,

The miraculous light
Every raindrop to dry,
The rainbow to follow
When tears you cry.

Yes, choose love, child,
No matter what may…
And blessed will be
Your Heaven-bound way!
