Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

Drifting away from Christ and the right

Drifting away from Christ and the right

Author: J. A. Griffith
Tune: [Drifting away from Christ and the right]
Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 Drifting away from Christ and the right,
Drifting away from mercy and light;
Sinner, you're drifting into the night,
Drifting away from God.

Chorus:
Drifting, drifting,
Drifting, drifting,
Under the chast'ning rod;
Drifting, drifting,
Drifting, drifting,
Drifting away from God.

2 Drifting away from dear mother's care,
Drifting away from home and from pray'r;
Drifting where hope will end in despair,
Drifting away from God. [Chorus]

3 Why longer drift? there's nothing to gain,
Think of the end, the sorrow and pain;
Why do you choose in sin to remain,
Drifting away from God. [Chorus]
