Lyrics
All your life you've lived a sinner the bright way you've never trod
You're drifting away, you're drifting away
When you come to cross the river and you haven't met with God
You're drifting away, you're drifting away

You're drifting away, you're drifting away
On down the dark river I'm sorry to say
You're drifting away, you're drifting away
Don't wait too long to let Jesus hear you pray

You won't give up your earthly treasures to enter the promised land
You're drifting away, you're drifting away
You can hear Jesus callin' but you won't accept his hand
You're drifting away, you're drifting away

You're drifting away, you're drifting away
On down the dark river I'm sorry to say
You're drifting away, you're drifting away
Don't wait too long to let Jesus hear you pray

When you come to cross the river Jesus won't give the command
You're drifting away, you're drifting away
And that dark rollin' river takes you to the sinkin' sand
You're drifting away, you're drifting away

You're drifting away, you're drifting away
On down the dark river I'm sorry to say
You're drifting away, you're drifting away
Don't wait too long to let Jesus hear you pray
