John F. Kinsey (1852–1908)


Only a lit­tle more sor­row,
Only a lit­tle more pain;
Only a lit­tle more sigh­ing—
Jesus is com­ing again.
Then, if I have been ac­cept­ed,
Dying shall be my gain;
I shall be freed from its sor­rows,
Jesus is com­ing again.

Only a lit­tle while long­er,
Chilled by the blasts of the wind;
Only a few pass­ing shadows,
Only a few sheaves to bind.
Jesus, I know, will be wait­ing,
Waiting for me to come;
And when the grain is all gar­nered,
Reapers shall shout, Har­vest Home.
