"LEST I FALL AWAY"

Verse 1
Oh my God, to You my soul doth fly
So high, as a bird, weary from the sky.
In Thy arms hold me safe, and hold me fast
Under Thy wings at last
'Til these storms are past.
Chorus 1
And there, I pray, unite our hearts, You and I.
Bid me stay with Thee, lest I fall away.
Verse 2
This my prayer will be, e'er that dread day shall be.
If I should leave Thee, oh God, please trouble me.
Then to You, again, will my soul take flight,
Away from fright, as a bird, weary in the night.
Chorus 2
And there, I pray, unite my heart to Thine,
Bid me stay with Thee, lest I fall away.
---------
Chorus 3
And there, I pray, unite my heart to Thine,
Bid me stay with Thee, for always.
Ending:
For always. --
