Away … as in absent from a place.
Or away … as the slaves who wanted to be free and the old Negro Spiritual “Steal away” which was about faith but also a code for running away.
Away … as in get away, as in thieves fleeing the scene of a crime.
Away – as in redeemed, cleansed. As expressed in the old hymn, “There is a fountain filled with blood, Drawn from Immanuel’s veins, And sinners, plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains… Washed all my sins away.”
And Away … as in “Some glad morning when this life is o’er, I’ll fly away, To a home on God’s celestial shore, I’ll fly away.”
Away, as in absent from here, wherever here is and who has not desired this change?
