Representative Text

1 Oh, my Savior bids me wait a little while,
And the dawning of the morning I shall see!
He will greet me with a kind and loving smile,
When I reach the home in heav’n prepared for me.

Refrain:
Just a little while!
Just a little while!
Till the dawning of the morning bright and fair!
Just a little while!
Just a little while!
I shall meet him with the angles in the air.

2 I shall patiently abide this little while!
Learning love’s enduring lesson while I wait,
Yielding not to earthly pleasures that beguile,
Waiting for the op’ening of the golden gate. [Refrain]

3 Father, help me work and pray this little while,
In the service finding gladness day by day,
Turning others from temptations that defile,
Winning souls to walk with joy the heav’nly way. [Refrain]

4 Oh, the blessings that surround this little while
Are a foretaste of his glory for my soul;
Thro’ the clouds I see the sunlight of his smile,
Soon will billows of salvation o’er me roll! [Refrain]
