Representative Text

1 When your soul is weary with a load of care,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He your heart will gladden when you call in pray’r,
Steal away with Jesus awhile.

Refrain:
Steal away with Jesus awhile,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He will hear you when you pray,
He will brighten all your way,
Steal away with Jesus awhile.

2 When your faith is tested by a foe unseen,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
If you’d gain the vict’ry, know a joy serene,
Steal away with Jesus awhile. [Refrain]

3 When your friends forsake you in the hour of test,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He will bear your burdens, give you peace and rest,
Steal away with Jesus awhile. [Refrain]

4 If you’d know the value of a soul that’s lost,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He will plainly show you what a price you cost,
Steal away with Jesus awhile. [Refrain]

5 Trusting in the promises that ne’er can fail,
Steal away with Jesus awhile;
He will surely answer, cause you to prevail,
Steal away with Jesus awhile. [Refrain]
