A Little While! Our Lord Shall Come ~ Hymn

The word for today is Little and since this is Sunday I’m sharing this Hymn. If you have a verse to share please add it in the comments and I’ll copy it on this post. Thank you!

A Little While! Our Lord Shall Come

A little while! our Lord shall come,
And we shall wander here no more;
He’ll take us to our Father’s home,
Where He for us has gone before,
To dwell with Him, to see His face,
And sing the glories of His grace.

A little while! He’ll come again;
Let us the precious hours redeem;
Our only grief to give Him pain,
Our joy to serve and follow Him;
Watching and ready may we be,
As those who long their Lord to see.

A little while! ’twill soon be past;
Why should we shun the shame and cross?
O let us in His footsteps haste,
Counting for Him all else but loss;
O how will recompense His smile
The sufferings of this little while!

A little while! come, Savior, come!
For Thee Thy bride has tarried long;
Take Thy poor wearied pilgrims home,
To sing the new eternal song,
To see Thy glory and to be
In everything conformed to Thee!

Words: James G. Deck, 1841.

From Maristella: Thank you Maristella for the hymn from your childhood and the Proverb!

Hi! I would like to share a hymn of my childhood…”Sabe,Senhor, o que temos é tão pouco pra dar, mas este pouco nós queremos com os irmãos compartilhar…” Something like this: You know my Lord, We have too little to give, but we want to share this little with our brothers in Christ…” ” Better a little with the fear of the Lord
than great wealth with turmoil.”
Proverbs 15:16 | NIV.

From Happy One at Life is Good:

Isiah 11:6 KJV

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb,
and the leopard shall lie down with the kid;
and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together;
and a LITTLE child shall lead them.
