Representative Text

1 The ills of earth with God’s great love
I cannot reconcile;
But I shall understand it all
In just a little while.

In just a little while,
Yes, just a little while,
I shall be free from grief and guile,
In just a little while.

2 The storms will soon abate, and through
The clouds the sun will shine;
My God shall wipe my tears away
In just a little while. [Refrain]

3 Discouraged I would often be—
My heart remains so vile;
Except I know I’ll be like Him
In just a little while. [Refrain]

4 Let men despise me if they will,
Forsake me or revile;
Thank God, with Jesus I shall reign
In just a little while. [Refrain]
