Only a little while, to walk with weary feet

Full 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.

Chorus:
Then we'll wait the little while,
Yes, we'll wait the little while;
We will wait the 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, [Chorus]

3 Only a little while, then let us do our best,
Only a little while, then comes the promised rest;
Only a little while, O what a word is this,
Only a little while, then comes the perfect bliss. [Chorus]

4 Only a little while, then death shall be withdrawn,
Only a little while, then pain and tears all gone;
Only a little while, then by the crystal sea,
Only a little while, then immortality. [Chorus]

5 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. [Chorus]

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.
