​Wait A Little Longer Please Jesus

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Old Country Church (1969).

Here the labor is so hard and the workers are so tired
And our weary hearts keep yearning for a rest
And we find we're getting anxious to be in that happy land
Where we'll receive such peace and happiness

But wait a little longer please Jesus
There's still so many wand'ring out in sin
Just a little longer please Jesus
A few more days to get our loved ones in

We may look into the skies and the tears will fill our eyes
For our burdened hearts grow heavier with each day
First we cry oh Lord please come and take your children home
But then we look around us and we say

Wait a little longer please Jesus
There's still so many wand'ring out in sin
Just a little longer please Jesus
A few more days to get our loved ones in

The family's scattered here and there but Lord we love them dear
And maybe we can help them find their way
But if waiting is the cost that they may not be lost
Lord that's the only reason why we say

Wait a little longer please Jesus
There's still so many wand'ring out in sin
Just a little longer please Jesus
A few more days to get our loved ones in
