Here the labor is so hard
And the workers are so tired
And our weary hearts are longing for a rest
And we find we're getting anxious
To be in that happy land
Where we'll enjoy some peace and happiness.

Chorus:
But wait a little longer please, Jesus
There are so many still wandering out in sin
Just a little longer, please Jesus
Just a few more days to let our loved ones in.

We may look into the skies
And tears will fill our eyes
For our weary hearts grow heavy with each day
First we cry, "Oh, Lord please come"
"Come and take your children home,"
And then we look around us and we say:

Chorus:
But wait a little longer please, Jesus
There are so many still wandering out in sin
Just a little longer, please Jesus
Just a few more days to let our loved ones in.

The family's scattered here and there
But Lord, we love them dear
And maybe we can help them find the way
Well if waiting is the cause
That they might not be lost
Lord, that's the only reason why we say:

Chorus:
But wait a little longer please, Jesus
There are so many still wandering out in sin
Just a little longer, please Jesus
Just a few more days to let our loved ones in.
