As the World Turns


Turning, turning
For grace I am yearning
For my heart and yours to agree
Turning, turning
My heart is learning
Repentance is setting me free.

As the world turns, I will turn too
When it turns away, Lord I’ll turn to you
When the world turns away
Or stops turning some day
I will go on with you

So I’ll reckon what’s right
And I’ll walk in the light
And deliverance from darkness I find
For as sure as I live
God will surely forgive
Once the gift of repentance is mine

Bridge
If my sins I would just confess
Forgiveness will be my reward
For it delights God’s heart to bless
When our hearts are in one accord

The penitent soul
That comes under control
Of the consoling Spirit of Grace
Will give praise and arise
There’ll be no compromise
For our author will finish our Faith

As the world turns, I will turn too
When it turns away, Lord I’ll turn to you
When the world turns away
Or stops turning some day
I will go on with you
