Into the light

As the spirit left the body
It ventured towards the light
Never thinking it would have to choose
Whether to go left or right

Standing at a  crossroads in the afterlife
A choice between glory and doom
A heavenly choir sings 
As eternal joy looms

The choice then becomes quite clear
As you choose the path that's right
Alleviating all your fears
As you journey into light
