Your Soul, to Save or Lose

By Gerald Cowan

God gave you a perfect soul,
As pure and white as snow.
And everywhere you go in life
Your soul will also go.
Everything you do in life
Leaves marks upon your soul
For good or ill.  So guard it well,
For you must keep it whole.
It’s yours in trust and must return
Someday to God who gave it.
All that you do determines if
He can or cannot save it.
It’s up to you to save your soul,
No matter what the cost.
You cast the vote which will decide
If it is saved or lost.

Will you do what is needed to save your soul, to strengthen your soul, to secure your soul and keep it in God’s care and keeping now and forever.

  1. I have been enjoying Bulletin Gold for over a decade....and I know this is a Church of Christ affiliated publication, but I have to give a comment on this poem....if our salvation depends upon our works, we are is either by the work of Christ or is not at all....our works are an evidence of our salvation, not a condition.... I love all Christian brothers and sisters so this is not an angry rant, just the truth from Ephesians 2:8-10
