175. Steal Away

Refrain:
Steal away, steal away,
steal away to Jesus!
Steal away, steal away home,
I ain't got long to stay here.

1 My Lord calls me,
he calls me by the thunder;
the trumpet sounds within-a my soul,
I ain't got long to stay here. [Refrain]

2 Green trees are bending,
poor sinners stand a-trembling;
the trumpet sounds within-a my soul,
I ain't got long to stay here. [Refrain]

3 Tombstones are bursting,
poor sinners stand a-trembling;
the trumpet sounds within-a my soul,
I ain't got long to stay here. [Refrain]

4 My Lord calls me,
he calls me by the lightning;
the trumpet sounds within-a my soul,
I ain't got long to stay here. [Refrain]
