Come away

A longing plucks at my heart
pulling strings
as if to play a love song

'Come away with me '
it says to me
'Come away, run free '

A new desire - how it burns!
it burns in my soul
it has pierced me, oh I yearn!

A new freedom has engaged
and is calling for me to run
away from the world at which Im enraged

A nearness and newness
is testing my spirit
as I turn my back on what is ruinous

'Come! Come away!
Come away with me
You, I will not betray '

Tis a better promise ahead
so I follow that road
it is narrow, not oft tread

'Beloved, I tell you,
Come, stay with me
And keep your heart true '

'My beloved, Forget me not
Follow me true
Only peace have I brought '

I follow my lover
and I cling to His rest
I will not have another

'So come away with me
Follow my Spirit '
-I'm coming Lover, with You I will be.
