Wandering Afar From The Saviors Side

Wand’ring afar from the Savior’s side,
Into a world of sin and shame;
Turning away the Crucified-
Spurning the love with which He came!

O, wanderer, weary and lost,
Why will you turn Him away?
Jesus who saves you at infinite cost-
Will you not take Him today?

Turning away from the heav’nly light,
Wandering on in paths of sin-
Choosing to dwell in eternal night-
Mocking the Spirit’s voice within! [Chorus]

Courting the wrath of a righteous God-
Hastening to the judgment morn,
Feeling no shame that the sinner’s rod
Fell on the Savior’s head forlorn! [Chorus]
