Drifting away from Jesus, Far from his gentle foldAuthor: Daniel Otis Teasley
Tune: [Drifting away from Jesus]
Published in 3 hymnals
1 Drifting away from Jesus,
Far from His gentle fold,
Wrecked on the waves of sorrow,
Out in the night so cold.
Oh, am I lost forever?
Lost amid fiendish din?
Oh, can there be no lifeboat
On the dark ocean of sin?
2 Drifting away from Jesus,
Day after day I glide,
Swiftly the billows bear me
Over the surging tide. [Refrain]
3 Drifting away from Jesus,
Helpless, and tossed with care;
Soon I shall land forever
Somewhere, I know not where. [Refrain]
4 Drifting away from Jesus,
Far from His courts of love,
Oh, do you see! A lifeboat
Sails from the ports above!
Over the bounding billows,
Jesus, my Savior, sends
Help to my storm-tossed spirit;
Praise to the Friend of friends!
