O come, come away, from labor now reposing,
Let anxious care, awhile forbear,
O come, come away.
O come, our sacred joys renew,
And here where faith will strengthen you,
And Christ will welcome you,
O come, come away.

From toil, and the cares on which the day is clos'ng,
The hour of eve, brings sweet reprieve,
O come, come away.
Oh come, where God will smile on thee,
And in our hearts will rapture be,
And time pass happily,
Oh come, come away.

While tuned to God's love, the angel's harps are ringing,
And sound his praise, through endless days,
Oh come, come away.
In answering songs of sympathy,
We'll sing in tuneful harmony,
From earth's temptation free,
Oh come, come away.

The bright day is gone, the moon and stars appearing
With silver light, illume the night,
Oh come, come away.
Come join your prayers with ours, address
Kind heaven our meeting here to bless,
With peace-hope-happiness-
O come, come away.
