1 One little hour for watching with the Master,
Eternal years to walk with Him in white;
One little hour to bravely meet disaster,
Eternal years to reign with Him in light!
Then soul, be brave, and watch until the morrow,
Awake, arise, Your lamps of purpose trim!
Your Saviour speaks across the night of sorrow:
Can you not watch one little hour with Him?
2 One little hour to suffer scorn and losses,
Eternal years beyond earth’s cruel frowns;
One little hour to carry heavy crosses,
Eternal years to wear unfading crowns! [Refrain]
3 One little hour for weary toils and trials,
Eternal years for calm and peaceful rest;
One little hour for patient self-denials,
Eternal years of life where life is blest! [Refrain]
