I hear God calling

Full Text

Refrain:
Steal away, steal away,
steal away to Jesus!
Steal away, steal away home,
I don't have long to stay here!

1 I hear God calling,
God called me by the thunder;
the trumpet sounds within my soul,
I don't have long to stay here. [Refrain]

2 Green trees are bending,
poor sinners stands a-trembling;
the trumpet sounds within my soul,
I don't have long to stay here. [Refrain]

3 I hear God calling,
God calls me by the lightning;
the trumpet sounds within my soul,
I don't have long to stay here. [Refrain]

4 Tombstones are bursting,
poor sinner stands a-trembling;
the trumpet sounds within my soul,
I don't have long to stay here. [Refrain]
