A few more years shall roll, a few more seasons come. And we shall be with those that rest, asleep within the tomb. A few more struggles here, a few more pardons over. A few toils, a few more tears, and we shall weep no more. Then O my lord prepare, my soul for that great day. O wash me in thy precious blood and take my sins away: and so, on the hymn goes.
