Representative Text

1 The Lord of Light shall give His peace,
“Until a little while,”
His watchful love shall never cease,
Nor lessened be His smile.

“Until a little while,”
“Until a little while,”
The Lord keep watch in tender love,
“Until a little while.”

2 The Lord of Light shall guardian be,
“Until a little while,”
Keep watch in love o’er thee and me,
Tho’ sundered paths beguile. [Refrain]

3 The Lord of Light with mighty arm,
“Until a little while,”
Shall keep from ev’ry dire alarm;
And safe-guard life’s long mile. [Refrain]

4 Thro’ varied scenes to Heaven’s gate
Our pilgrim band shall file;
To where the “loved and lost” ones wait,
“Until a little while.” [Refrain]
