Representative Text

1 Only a little while to walk with weary feet,
Only a little while the storms of life to meet;
Only a little while to tread the thorny way,
Only a little while, then comes the perfect day.

Refrain:
Then we’ll wait a little while,
Yes, we’ll wait and with a smile
We will wait a little while,
Till the Saviour calls, come home.

2 Only a little while to spread the truth abroad,
Only a little while to testify for God;
Only a little while, the time is fleeting fast,
Only a little while, earth’s sorrows all are past. [Refrain]

3 Only a little while, then death shall be withdrawn,
Only a little while, then pain and tears are gone;
Only a little while, then by the crystal sea,
Only a little while, then immortality. [Refrain]

4 Only a little while; Lord, let Thy kingdom come,
Only a little while, Thy people sigh for home;
Only a little while, the city bring to sight,
Only a little while, come end earth’s dreary night. [Refrain]

From The World's Crisis, 13 April 1921, p.7: "Elder Sederquist was born in Lower Granville, Nova Scotia, according to the narrative in his Life and Labors, Sept. 10, 1838. He was converted about the first of the year 1863, was baptized in February, and was soon out in the field in Gospel work, with open doors for his labors. After a few years he accepted the Adventist faith, and in the spring of 1871 entered the United States and took up his home in Lynn [Mass.]." --Entire article available in the DNAH Archives.
