2. Steal away to Jesus.
Steal away home!
I ain’t got long to stay here.
a. My Lord, he calls me by the thunder.
The trumpet sounds within my soul!
I ain’t got long to stay here.

b. Green trees abendin’,
the sinner stands atremblin’.
The trumpet…

c. My Lord, he calls me by the lightnin’.
The trumpet…

3. Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel?
So why not every man?
He deliver’d Daniel from the lion’s den,
an’ Jonah from the belly of the whale
an’ the Hebrew children from the fiery furnace
an’ why not every man?
I set my foot on the Gospel ship,
the ship it begin to sail,
an’ it landed me over on Canaan’s shore
an’ I won’t come back anymore.
