Representative Text

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

Chorus:
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. [Chorus]

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

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

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