Words & music by Steve Thorngate

lyrics

Turning away
Day after day
From what we say we don’t love.
Turning away.

Following Christ
Down from the heights,
From paradise to the wild.
Following Christ.

Our wealth and comfort,
Pride and glory
Fade
After turning away.

Starting again
With God as a friend,
With love that could bend our hearts.
Starting again.

Wandering on.
It never is done.
We are so fond of all this
Wandering on.

We’re looking backward,
Missing all we’ve
Left
After turning away.

Turning away,
With feet made of clay,
From all that we pray we won’t love.
Turning away.
