Lyrics: Martha, sweet Martha, beloved of the Lord, <br/>Thou art cumbered much with serving, work has its own reward. <br/>For thy lamp to shine forth brightly and light the path ahead <br/>The oil must be replenished, thy spirit must be fed. <br/> <br/>Choose the good part, listen to the Lord. <br/>Choose the good part, feast upon His word. <br/>Thou art careful and troubled by oh, so many things <br/>Feel the peace and the comfort and wisdom that He brings. <br/>Only one thing is needful, listen to your heart, <br/>Choose the good part, choose Christ! <br/> <br/>Daughter, sweet daughter, beloved of the Lord, <br/>Has your life become too crowded with good things of the world? <br/>For in daily serving others your well may soon run dry, <br/>But Christ has living water, your need He will supply. <br/> <br/>Choose the good part, listen to the Lord <br/>Choose the good part, feast upon His word. <br/>Thou art careful and troubled by oh, so many things, <br/>Feel the peace and the comfort and wisdom that He brings. <br/>Only one thing is needful, listen to your heart, <br/>Choose the good part, choose Christ. <br/> <br/>Choose Christ! <br/>
