Representative Text

1 Drifting away from God today,
Out in the world to roam;
How sad the heart will ever be,
The heart that once was pure and free,
But wandering now alone.

Refrain:
Drifting away, drifting away,
Drifting, yes, drifting away,
Drifting away, away from God.

2 Drifting away from God today,
From mother, home and friend,
Thro’ stormy winds that blast and blight;
O’er desert sands and mountain height,
Unto a bitter end. [Refrain]

3 Drifting away from God today,
Far o’er the sea of sin;
Oh! who will guide your footsteps sure,
And who will make your soul secure?
’Tis God who dwells within. [Refrain]
