Verse:
Soon this life will all be o - ver,  And our pil - grim - age will end.
Soon will take our heavn - ly jour - ney,  Be at home a - gain with friends.
Heav - en's gates are stand - ing o - pen,  Wait - ing for our en - trance there.
Some sweet day we're go - ing o - ver,  All the beau - ties there to share.
 
Chorus:
Just a lit - tle time to stay here,
Just a lit - tle time to wait.
Just a lit - tle while to la - bor,
In the path that's al - ways straight.
Just a lit - tle more of trou - ble,
In this low and sin - ful state.
Then we'll en - ter Heav - en's por - tals,
Sweep - ing through the pear - ly gates.
