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

(Wait a little longer, please Jesus
There are so many wandering 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 tears will fill our eyes
For our burdened hearts grow heavier with each day
First we cry oh Lord please come come and take your children home
But then we look around us and we say.

(Wait a little longer, please Jesus
There are so many wandering out in sin
Just a little longer, please Jesus
A few more days to get our loved ones in.)

The family scattered here and there but Lord we love them dear
And maybe we can help them find a way
Then 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 are so many wandering out in sin
Just a little longer, please Jesus
A few more days to get our loved ones in...)

    Hazel Houser did not write this song. I did, when I was sixteen years old. Chester Smith stole it and used her as his scapegoat.
