Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 A little while to sow and reap,
And then away to Jesus;
A little while our watch to keep,
And then away to Jesus.

Refrain:
To Jesus, to Jesus,
Away, away to Jesus,
To feast the soul, while ages roll,
And shout the love of Jesus.

2 A little while on earth to meet,
And then away to Jesus;
To feel the bliss of union sweet,
And then away to Jesus. [Refrain]

3 A little while our crown to win,
And then away to Jesus;
A few more vict’ries over sin,
And then away to Jesus. [Refrain]

4 A little while to part in tears,
And then away to Jesus;
A few more days, a few more years,
And then away to Jesus. [Refrain]
