"Steal Away"

   
Solo Chorus
 
    Refrain  
 
Steal away, steal away,
Steal away to Jesus.
Steal away, steal away home,
I ain't go long to stay here.
 
  1. My Lord calls me
He calls me by the thunder;
 
    The trumpet sounds within-a my soul;
I ain't got long to stay here.
 
    Refrain  
 
2.
Green trees are bending;
Poor sinners stand a-trembing;

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