A LITTLE WHILE




Oh, for the peace
that floweth as a river,
Making life’s desert places
bloom and smile;
Oh, for the faith to grasp
“Heav’n’s bright forever,”
Amid the shadows
of earth’s “little while.”


“A little while”
for patient vigil keeping,
To face the storm
and wrestle with the strong;
“A little while” to sow
the seed with weeping,
Then bind the sheaves
and sing the harvest song.


“A little while”
the earthen pitcher taking,
To wayside brooks,
from far off fountains fed;
Then the parched lip
its thirst forever slaking
Beside the fullness
of the Fountainhead.


“A little while”
to keep the oil from failing,
“A little while” faith’s
flick’ring lamp to trim;
And then the Bridegroom’s
coming footsteps hailing,
We’ll haste to meet Him
with the bridal hymn.
