Rejoice and exult in hope; be steadfast and patient in suffering and tribulation; be constant in prayer.@Romans 12:12

Landes Daniel P. Airhart (1849-1927) (🔊 pdf nwc).

Be patient but a little while,
In suffering you must learn to wait;
The Savior keeps His trusting child,
And guides him to the golden gate.

Refrain

Be patient but a little while,
Be patient, weary one, and wait;
The Savior keeps His trusting child,
And guides him to the golden gate.

Be patient, tho’ the way seems dark,
A Father’s care will thee surround,
His love prepares the needed ark
Where bitter waters may abound.

Refrain

Be patient, then, your way pursue,
Till you the victory have won;
Till Christ the Lord shall say to you,
It is enough, well done, well done.

Refrain
