Lyrics

Oh, list to the watchman crying:
Come, come away!
The arrows of death are flying:
Come, come today!

Refrain

Come, come away!
Come, come away!
Jesus is gently calling:
Come, come today!

The Spirit of God is pleading:
Come, come away!
The Savior is interceding:
Come, come today!

Refrain

The mercy of God is calling:
Come, come away!
How sweetly the words are falling:
Come, come today!

Refrain

The angels of God entreat you:
Come, come away!
The Father Himself will meet you:
Come, come today!
