Representative Text

1. Only a little while
Of walking with weary feet,
Patiently over the thorny way
That leads to the golden street.

2. Suffer if God shall will,
And work for Him while we may,
From Calvary’s cross to Zion’s crown,
Is only a little way.

3. Only a little while,
For toiling a few short days,
And then comes the rest, the quiet rest,
Eternity’s endless praise.
