Drifting Away From Jesus The Thy Lord


Drifting away from Jesus the Lord,
Drifting away from love for His word;
Drifting away from tho’t and from care,
Drifting away from song and from pray’r.

Refrain:
Drifting, drifting, drifting away,
Drifting away from Jesus the Lord,
Drifting away, yes, drifting away?

Drifting away from paths He hath trod,
Drifting away from people of God,
Drifting away from fellowship sweet,
Drifting away from heav’n mercy-seat. [Refrain]

Drifting away from wounds in His side,
Drifting away from Christ crucified;
Drifting away from seats on His throne,
Drifting away to darkness unknown. [Refrain]

Wilt thou not turn against the dark tide?
Wilt thou not own this Jesus denied?
Then with thy face aglow with the day,
Wilt thou not cease from drifting away? [Refrain]
