1 Drifting away from the Saviour,
Casting reproach on the Lord;
Drifting away from Him temple,
Heeding no longer His word.

Refrain:
Drifting away, drifting away,
Drifting away from the Saviour,
Drifting, still drifting away.

2 Drifting away from the Saviour,
Slighting and grieving His love;
Drifting away from the Mansions
He is preparing above. [Refrain]

3 Drifting away from the Saviour,
Lonely and helpless Thou art;
Drifting away from His people,
Ever so dear to His heart. [Refrain]

4 Drifting away from the Saviour,
He who has showed you the way;—
Drifting away from His teaching,
Farther and farther each day. [Refrain]

5 Drifting away from the Saviour,
Still He is mindful of thee,
Come unto Him and believing,
Pardon’d thro’ grace thou shalt be. [Refrain]
