Full Text

1 A few more years of toil and care,
And then our sorrow will be o’er,
Midst palaces and gardens fair,
We shall be glad forevermore.

Refrain:
A few more years,
A few more years
A few more years of toil and care,
And then our sorrow will be o’er.

2 A few more heartaches, groans and tears,
Ere life’s dark shadows flee away,
And then through endless happy years,
We shall in peace the days survey. [Refrain]

3 A few more years of deep despair,
Ere Christ shall bid us to Him come,
For angels soon will call us there,
To endless rest in heaven’s home. [Refrain]
