Turn Away

A Hymn for Ash Wednesday

1. Turn away from sin and
follow the Gospel says the
one applying ashes
to your forehead Ash Wednesday.

Heed and obey. Just let the
(Turn away, turn away…...turn away)
Lord come and stay in your heart.
Let the Spirit lead you
Home to the Lord. Repent and

Turn away from evil.
Follow the Gospel to do
Good in your life.  Seek peace
And a clean heart.

2. Mark of the cross is on you
Ash from the past has found you
As you make your way back
Into the pew this Wednesday.

Read to know more. Open your
(Turn away, Turn away,…... turn away)
Mind and explore what faith is
Let the Spirit lead you
Home to the Lord. Repent and


Seek God
Turn from selfish actions.
Tend to your response
To His call to reunite your
Heart and soul.


God has a plan of action
Pay His son close attention.
He is your heart's attraction
Clear your heart's main affection.
Make an examination
Call to reunite your heart and soul.

Follow the Gospel and just
turn away sin.
