Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for 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. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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

Representative 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.

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]
