804. 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 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 are bending, poor sinner stands a-trembling,
the trumpet sounds within a my soul. I ain’t got long to stay here. (Refrain)

3 Tombstones are bursting, poor sinner stands a-trembling,
the trumpet sounds within a my soul. I ain’t got long to stay here. (Refrain)

4 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)
