Some Go Away From The House Tonight


Some go away from the house to-night,
Purified from sin;
Others reject the precious light,
and go away unclean;
Lovingly still the Savior stands,
Pleading with thy heart;
Patiently knocks with His bleeding hands,
Unwilling to depart.

Chorus:
Going away from Christ to-night,
Away from His loving care;
Going away from blessed light,
To darkness and despair.

Some will go out form the house to-night,
Harden’d by delay,
Yielding to satan’s luring snare,
Will hopeless turn away;
Nevermore shall the Spirit plead
At the bolted door;
Now is the hour of thy soul’s great need,
‘T is now or nevermore. [Chorus]

Some will go out from the house to-night,
Full of trust in God,
Happy in heart, made pure and white,
By Jesus’ precious blood;
Go not away, poor wand’rer stay
Till thou too art free!
Walking with Christ life’s happy way,
Most blessed shalt thou be. [Chorus]

Waiting a moment more for thee,
Jesus still entreats;
Soon will the knocking ended be,
That now thy closed heart beats,
Stay, sinner, stay at Mercy’s door,
Seek the open gate;
Sinner, decide, lest hope be o’er,
And thou shouldst be too late. [Chorus]
