8292. Drifting Away

1 Drifting away from God today,
Out in the world to roam;
How sad the heart will ever be,
The heart that once was pure and free,
But wandering now alone.

Drifting away, drifting away,
Drifting, yes, drifting away,
Drifting away, away from God.

2 Drifting away from God today,
From mother, home and friend,
Thro’ stormy winds that blast and blight;
O’er desert sands and mountain height,
Unto a bitter end. [Refrain]

3 Drifting away from God today,
Far o’er the sea of sin;
Oh! who will guide your footsteps sure,
And who will make your soul secure?
’Tis God who dwells within. [Refrain]
