Representative Text

1 Come away, come away ‘tis God’s holy day,
And leave your sinful pleasures;
Leave your work, leave your play,
Come, hasten away,
For vain are earthly treasures.

Come, come, come,
Oh, come with us to-day!
Hear our voices ringing,
Glad tribute we will bring
To the children’s glorious King,
His praises we are singing!

2 Come away, come away, ‘tis God’s holy day,
The best of all the seven;
Come away, come away,
Come, join us to-day,
To learn of God and heaven. [Refrain]

3 Come away, come away, seek Jesus to-day,
And dwell in His loving favor;
Come away, come away,
To sing and pray,
And praise our blessed Saviour. [Refrain]
