Full Text

1 Just a little longer to work for Jesus,
Days for earthly toil are short and few;
Just a little longer to fight life's battles,
And to prove thyself a soldier brave and true.

Chorus:
Just a little longer, just a little longer,
O my soul be patient, to the end endure;
Just a little longer the cross to bear,
Then a long eternity the crown to wear.

2 Just a little longer the seed to scatter
Out upon the harvest-fields so wide;
Just a little longer the sheaves to gather,
Coming with rejoicing at the eventide. [Chorus]

3 Just a little longer to lift the fallen,
Precious, never-dying souls to save;
Just a little longer to tell the story,
And to speed the message o'er the ocean wave. [Chorus]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
