Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 In a little while more, these rolling years
No more will come and go;
In a little while more, our busy hands
No more the seed will sow;
In a little while more, the harvest grounds
Will yield their golden wheat;
In a little while more, our precious store
We’ll lay at Jesus feet.

Refrain:
In a little while more,
Little while more,
Safe among the blest,
Where sorrow and toil are felt no more,
Our weary feet shall rest.

2 In a little while more, the friends we love
Will pass from earth away;
In a little while more, the bells of time
Will ring the close of day;
In a little while more, the Bridegroom’s voice
Will sound the midnight cry;
In a little while more, we too shall go
Where love can never die. [Refrain]

3 In a little while more, the storms we dread
In holy calm will cease;
In a little while more, the tears we shed
Will bring the light of peace;
In a little while more, a morn will come
To aching hearts oppressed;
In a little while more, our sheaves we’ll bind,
And then, eternal rest. [Refrain]
