Drifting Away from God

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.

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]
