Just A Few More Days

exibições 144

Not so long ago one morning
Mother called me to her bed
Then she threw her arms around me
Listen to the words she said

Darling I am going to leave you
But you'll not be left alone
Jesus will protect and shield you
After he has carried me home

Just a few more days of sorrow
Just a few more days of pain
Just a few more days of cloudness
Just a few more days of rain

Then I'm going to live with Jesus
He has got a home prepared
Then I'll join the holy angels
Mother will be waiting there

Sometimes I am sorely tempted
Sometimes I am sorely tried
But to overcome I'm trying
Taking Jesus as my guide

Oh sometimes the path seems rugged
But it only makes me pray
And I know if I keep trying
I'll see my mother some sweet day
