DRIFTING TOO FAR FROM THE SHORE
Emmylou Harris


(Traditional)

Out on the perilous deep,
where danger silently creeps,
and storm's so violently sweeping,
You're drifting too far from shore.

chorus: Drifting too far from shore,
You're drifting too far from shore,
Come to Jesus today,
Let Him show you the way.
You're drifting too far from shore,

Today, the Tempest rose high,
and clouds o'ershadow the sky.
Sure death is hovering nigh,
You're drifting too far from shore.

Drifting too far from shore,
You're drifting too far from shore,
Come to Jesus today,
Let Him show you the way.
You're drifting too far from shore,

Why meet a terrible fate?
Mercies abundantly wait.
Turn back before it's too late
You're drifting too far from shore.

Drifting too far from shore
You're drifting too far from shore (peaceful shore)
Come to Jesus today. Let him show you the way
You're drifting too far from shore.
