1 If you get there before I do,
'Most done lingering here;
Look out for me I am coming too,
'Most done lingering here.

Chorus:
I 'm going away, going away,
I 'm 'most done lingering here;
I 'm going away to Galilee, and
I 'm 'most done lingering here.

2 Paradise is wade and fair,
'Most done lingering here
Won't we shout when we get there?
'Most done lingering here. [Chorus]

3 My Jesus smiles and bids me come,
'Most done lingering here
And I am resolved to follow on.
'Most done lingering here [Chorus]

4 The tallest tree in Paradise,
'Most done lingering here
The Christian calls the tree of life.
'Most done lingering here. [Chorus]

5 I have hard trials on my way,
'Most done lingering here
But still king Jesus hears me pray.
'Most done lingering here [Chorus]

6 Why Christians you must watch and pray,
'Most done lingering here
And look to Jesus every day.
'Most done lingering here. [Chorus]
