505. Steal Away to Jesus!

Refrain:
Steal away, steal away,
steal away to Jesus!
Steal away, steal away home,
I ain't got long to stay here.

1 My Lord, He calls me,
He calls me by the thunder;
The trumpet sounds within my soul;
I ain't got long to stay here. [Refrain]

2 Green trees are bending,
Poor sinners stand a-trembling;
The trumpet sounds within my soul;
I ain't got long to stay here. [Refrain]

3 My Lord, He calls me,
He calls me by the lightning;
The trumpet sounds within my soul;
I ain't got long to stay here. [Refrain]
