1 Drifting away from Jesus the Lord,
Drifting away from love for His word;
Drifting away from tho’t and from care,
Drifting away from song and from pray’r.
Drifting, drifting, drifting away,
Drifting away from Jesus the Lord,
Drifting away, yes, drifting away?
2 Drifting away from paths He hath trod,
Drifting away from people of God,
Drifting away from fellowship sweet,
Drifting away from heav’n mercy-seat. [Refrain]
3 Drifting away from wounds in His side,
Drifting away from Christ crucified;
Drifting away from seats on His throne,
Drifting away to darkness unknown. [Refrain]
4 Wilt thou not turn against the dark tide?
Wilt thou not own this Jesus denied?
Then with thy face aglow with the day,
Wilt thou not cease from drifting away? [Refrain]
