|Text:||When Any Turn From Zion's Way|
|Composer:||George Nelson Allen|
1 When any turn from Zion’s way,
(Alas! what numbers do!)
Methinks I hear my Savior say,
"Wilt thou forsake Me too?"
2 Ah Lord! with such a heart as mine,
Unless Thou hold me fast;
I feel I must, I shall decline,
And prove like them at last.
3 Yet Thou alone hast power, I know,
To save a wretch like me;
To whom, or whither, could I go,
If I should turn from Thee?
4 Beyond a doubt I rest assured
Thou art the Christ of God;
Who hast eternal life secured
By promise and by blood.
5 The help of men and angels joined,
Could never reach my case;
Nor can I hope relief to find,
But in Thy boundless grace.
6 No voice but Thine can give me rest,
And bid my fears depart;
No love but Thine can make me blest,
And satisfy my heart.
7 What anguish has that question stirred,
If I will also go?
Yet, Lord, relying on Thy Word,
I humbly answer, "No!"
