lyrics

1. A few more years shall roll,
A few more seasons come,
And we shall be with those that rest
Asleep within the tomb:
Then, O my Lord, prepare
My soul for that great day;
O wash me in thy precious blood,
and take my sins away.

2. A few more storms shall beat
Upon this rocky shore,
And we shall be where tempests cease,
And surges swell no more:
Then, O my Lord, prepare
My soul for that calm day;
O wash me in thy precious blood,
and take my sins away.

3. A few more Sabbaths here
Shall cheer us on our way,
And we shall reach the endless rest,
The eternal Sabbath day:
Then, O my Lord, prepare
My soul for that sweet day;
O wash me in thy precious blood,
and take my sins away.

4. ‘Tis but a little while,
And he shall come again,
Who died that we might live,
Who lives that we with him may reign:
Then, O my Lord, prepare
My soul for that glad day;
O wash me in thy precious blood,
and take my sins away.

[Refrain]
A few more years shall roll,
A few more seasons come…

O wash me in thy precious blood,
and take me to my home.
