1 Oh, list to the watchman crying:
Come, come away!
The arrows of death are flying:
Come, come today!

Refrain:
Come, come away!
Come, come away!
Jesus is gently calling:
Come, come today!
The Spirit of God is pleading:
Come, come away!
The Savior is interceding:
Come, come today!

2 The mercy of God is calling:
Come, come away!
How sweetly the words are falling:
Come, come today! [Refrain]

3 The angels of God entreat you:
Come, come away!
The Father Himself will meet you:
Come, come today! [Refrain]
