The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Few More Years

A few more years shall 5 roll
a few more seasons will 1 come
And we will be with those that 4 rest
a 1 sleep with- 5 in the 1 tomb

Then, oh my Lord, pre- 5 pare
my soul for that great 1 day
Oh wash me in the precious 4 blood
and 1 take my 4 sins all a 1 way

A few more meetings here
shall cheer us on our way
And we shall reach the endless rest
on that eternal day

A few more suns shall set
o'er these dark hills of time
And we shall be where suns are not
a far serener clime

A few more storms shall beat
on this wild rocky shore
And we shall be where tempests cease
and surges swell no more
