Come Away

A Song by Edward Waters
(Copyright © May 1978)

Come away!  Come away!
Sever the ties that bind you to this world.
Know that the Lord has set apart the godly man;
The Lord will hear when he calls to Him.[1]

Don't be like a whitewashed tomb
Which seems so lovely to behold,
While deep inside it is unclean and full of death.
If this is true, woe to you![2]

So come away!  Come away!
Sever the ties that bind you to this world.
Know that the Lord has set apart the godly man;
The Lord will hear when he calls to Him.

It's true there's work that must be done;
There's a good news that must be told.
But first there must be those who'll love the Lord their God
With their all,[3] who'll heed the call ...

To come away.  Come away!
Sever the ties that bind you to this world.
Know that the Lord has set apart the godly man;
The Lord will hear when he calls to Him.
 

 

      [1]  Psalm 4.3       [2]  Matthew 23.27-28     [3]  Mark 12.30
