Title: When I Turn Away
Meter: 7 6 7 6 D
Topic: repentance, improvement

1.
When I turn my face away
And set my feet to stray
Thy love then holds to me fast
And keeps me there steadfast.

So, I’ll never seek to be
From Thy love’s tethers free.
Like the string that holds the kite
Aloft against wind’s might.

2.
When I turn my heart to stone
And forge out on my own
Then Thy love stays close nearby
I never leave Thy eye.

So, I’ll never seek to be
From Thy love’s tethers free.
Like the string that holds the kite
Aloft against wind’s might.

3.
When I let my mind forget
The bounds that Thou hast set
Then Thy love gently reminds
My ear to Thee inclines.

So, I’ll never seek to be
From Thy love’s tethers free.
Like the string that holds the kite
Aloft against wind’s might.
