Just A Few More Days ~ hymn

I’ll exchange my cross for a starry crown

We sang this upbeat tune today in services. It was a joy to be in person with many and virtually with many more. It was so nice to know that I was worshiping with my parents who are in a different state. It was a joy to know that others, around the globe, would see and be able to participate in making a joyful noise to the Lord and that He would be glorified through it.

At Home Dad led singing this morning at services and said he had been humming this for a few days. I wasn’t surprised because I had evidently heard him and not realized it. I have been humming it, too. It’s a good one.

Here’s a nice audio. It is on YouTube but there is no video.

Just A Few More Days 

words and music: Charles Hutchinson Gabriel (1917)

1 Just a few more days to be filled with praise,
And to tell the old, old story;
Then, when twilight falls, and my Savior calls,
I shall go to Him in glory.

Chorus:
I’ll exchange my cross for a starry crown,
Where the gates swing outward never;
At His feet I’ll lay ev’ry burden down,
And with Jesus reign forever.

2 Just a few more years with their toil and tears,
And the journey will be ended;
Then I’ll be with Him, where the tide of time
With eternity is blended. [Chorus]

3 Tho’ the hills be steep and the valleys deep,
With no flow’rs my way adorning;
Tho’ the night be lone and my rest a stone,
Joy awaits me in the morning. [Chorus]

4 What a joy ’twill be when I wake to see
Him for whom my heart is burning!
Nevermore to sigh, nevermore to die–
For that day my heart is yearning. [Chorus]

 

Blessings,
Lori, At Home.
