Representative Text

1 Away from God, so far away,
Why will you longer from Him stray?
Sin’s weary way you long have trod,
O come today, say yes to God.

Say yes to God, O why delay?
Say yes to God, O come today;
Fly to His arms, why longer wait?
Tomorrow it may be too late.

2 Away from God, where hope is dead,
Where peace and joy have from you fled!
Where you are weary and oppressed,
O come to Him for peace and rest. [Refrain]

3 Away from God, so faint, so weak,
O come to Him and pardon seek.
’Tis Jesus calls, why longer stay,
While angels wait and Christians pray? [Refrain]

4 Away from God, away from home,
Why will you longer from Him roam?
Why will you spurn His pleading cry,
Why will you slight His love and die? [Refrain]
