Full Text

1 I am drifting down the stream of time,
Yes, drifting t’ward the golden shore,
But I do not heed the billows,
For the Saviour guide my oar,
As I’m drifting t’ward the golden shore.

Refrain:
I am drifting, yes, drifting,
I am drifting t’ward the golden shore,
But I do not heed the billows,
For the Saviour guide my oar,
As I’m drifting t’ward the golden shore.

2 I am drifting down the stream of time,
Yes, nearing now the golden gate,
I am nearer to that life eternal
Where my lov’d ones wait,
As I’m drifting t’ward the golden gate. [Refrain]

3 I am drifting down the stream of time,
Yes, drifting farther out each day,
But I do not dread the voyage,
For my Saviour guides my way,
As I’m drifting farther out each day. [Refrain]
