It Won't Be Long Till My Grave Is Made

This song is by Walter Smith & Norman Woodlieff.

Oh the time will come, and it won't be long
When I leave this world, for the land of song
Then to shout and sing while the ages roll
And be sheltered there from the heat and cold

In a lone graveyard, I'll soon be laid
It'll not be long 'til my grave is made
But in that sweet home, where my loved ones wait
Is a place for me, when I reach that gate

I will labor on, 'til the sun goes down
For awaiting me is a robe and crown
And a place there'll be, with the angel band
Where I'll take my seat at the Lord's right hand

In a lone graveyard, I'll soon be laid
It'll not be long 'til my grave is made
But in that sweet home, where my loved ones wait
Is a place for me, when I reach that gate

It will not be long 'til the close of day
Soon my life will end, then I'll pass away
But I'll serve the Lord, and I'll do my best
'Til He calls me home, to my place of rest

In a lone graveyard, I'll soon be laid
It'll not be long 'til my grave is made
But in that sweet home, where my loved ones wait
Is a place for me, when I reach that gate

In a lone graveyard, I'll soon be laid
It'll not be long 'til my grave is made
But in that sweet home, where my loved ones wait
Is a place for me, when I reach that gate
