Just A Few More Days

Not so long ago one morning

Mother called me to her bed

Then she threw her arms around me

Listen to the words she said


Darling I am going to leave you

But you'll not be left alone

Jesus will protect and shield you

After he has carried me home


    Just a few more days of sorrow

    Just a few more days of pain

    Just a few more days of cloudness

    Just a few more days of rain


    Then I'm going to live with Jesus

    He has got a home prepared

    Then I'll join the holy angels

    Mother will be waiting there


Sometimes I am sorely tempted

Sometimes I am sorely tried

But to overcome I'm trying

Taking Jesus as my guide


Oh sometimes the path seems rugged

But it only makes me pray

And I know if I keep trying

I'll see my mother some sweet day
