“In A Little While” — lyrics & chords

Words and music by Eliza Edmunds Hewitt. 1899. Arranged by Andru Bemis

                F                                           Bb                             F
Let us sing a song that will cheer us on the way
                                                              C   C7
In a little while we’re going home
                   Bb                                                          F
And the night will end in everlasting day
          C                                   C7        F
In a little while we’re going home

          C                   C7       F
In a little while, in a little while
                                                             C   C7
We shall cross the billow’s foam
                      Bb                                             F
And we’ll meet at last when the stormy winds have passed
          C                                   C7         F
In a little while we’re going home

We will do the work that our hands may find to do
In a little while we’re going home
And the grace of God will our daily strength renew
In a little while we’re going home

There is rest beyond, there’s relief from every care
In a little while we’re going home
And no tears shall fall in that city bright and fair
In a little while we’re going home
