1 O, come, come away! for time’s career is closing,
Let worldly care henceforth forbear,
O, come, come away!
Come, come our holy joys renew,
Where love and heav’nly friendship grew,
The Spirit welcomes you!
O, come, come away!

2 Awake ye, awake! not time now for responding,
“The Lord is near!” breaks on the ear,
O, come, come away!
Come, come where Jesus’ love will be,
Who says, “I’ll meet with two or three,”
Sweet promise made to thee,
O, come, come away!

3 Night soon will be o’er, and endless day appearing,
Away from home no more we’ll roam,
O, come, come away!
And when the trump of God shall sound
The saints no more by Death are bound:
He owns our Jesus crown’d;
O, come, come away!

4 O, come, come away! my Saviour in thy glory,
“Thy kingdom come, thy will be done;”
O, come, come away!
O, come, my Lord, thy right maintain,
And take thy throne and on it reign;
Then earth shall bloom again!
O, come, come away!
