Title: Flee as a Bird
Composer: Anonymous (Traditional)
Original text and translations
Flee as a bird to your mountain,
Thou who art weary of sin.
Go to the clear flowing fountain,
Where you may wash and be clean.
Fly, for th'avenger is near thee;
Call and the Saviour will hear thee.
He on his bosom will bear thee,
O thou, who art weary of sin.
He will protect thee for ever,
Wipe ev'ry falling tear
He will forsake thee, O never
Sheltered so tenderly there;
Haste, then, the hours are flying,
Spend not the moments in sighing,
Cease from your sorrow and crying,
The Saviour will wipe ev'ry tear.
