Philip P. Bliss (1838-1876)

Only a few more years,
Only a few more cares,
Only a few more smiles and tears,
Only a few more prayers.

Only a few more wrongs,
Only a few more sighs,
Only a few more earthly songs,
Only a few goodbyes.

Then an eternal stay,
Then an eternal throng,
Then an eternal, glorious day,
Then an eternal song!
