Representative Text

1 A little while the cross to bear,
Eternally the crown to wear;
A little while to strive with win,
Eternal victory to win.

Refrain:
A little while, a little while,
And we shall lay our crosses down;
A little while, a little while,
And we shall wear the victor’s crown.

2 A little while to suffer pain,
Sweet peace forevermore to gain;
A little while earth’s toils to bear,
Eternally heav’n’s rest to share. [Refrain]

3 Sad tears a little while shall flow,
Eternity no grief shall know;
In deserts drear a little while,
Forever where green pastures smile. [Refrain]
