704. Steal Away to Jesus

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 he 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 a-bending,
poor sinners stand a-trembling;
the trumpet sounds within-a my soul.
I ain’t got long to stay here.
(Refrain)

3 My Lord he calls me,
he calls me by the lightning;
the trumpet sounds within-a my soul.
I ain’t got long to stay here.
(Refrain)
