Beyond the smiling and the weeping - A little while (Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

A little while.

1. Beyond the smiling and the weeping
        I shall be soon;
beyond the waking and the sleeping,
beyond the sowing and the reaping,
        I shall be soon.
    Love, rest, and home!
            Sweet hope!
    Lord, tarry not, but come. (PDF - Midi)

2. Beyond the blooming and the fading
        I shall be soon;
beyond the shining and the shading,
beyond the hoping and the dreading,
        I shall be soon.
    Love, rest, and home!
            Sweet hope!
    Lord, tarry not, but come.

3. Beyond the rising and the setting
        I shall be soon;
beyond the calming and the fretting,
beyond remembering and forgetting,
        I shall be soon.
    Love, rest, and home!
            Sweet hope!
    Lord, tarry not, but come.

4. Beyond the gathering and the strowing
        I shall be soon;
beyond the ebbing and the flowing,
beyond the coming  and the going,
        I shall be soon.
    Love, rest, and home!
            Sweet hope!
    Lord, tarry not, but come.

5. Beyond the parting and the meeting
        I shall be soon;
beyond the farewell and the greeting,
beyond the pulse's fever-beating,
        I shall be soon.
    Love, rest, and home!
            Sweet hope!
    Lord, tarry not, but come.

6. Beyond the frost-chain and the fever
        I shall be soon;
beyond the rock-waste and the river,
beyond the ever and the never,
        I shall be soon.
    Love, rest, and home!
            Sweet hope!
    Lord, tarry not, but come.
