A little way i know it is not far,

to that dear home were my beloved are,

and still my heart sits, like a bird upon an empty nest,

and mourn it's treasures gone,

plumed for their flight , and vanish quite,

ah! me where is the comfort? though i say,

they have but journeyed on a little way.

 

A little way! at times they seam so near,

their voices even murmur in my ear,

to all my duties loving presents lend,

and with sweet ministry my steps attend,

it was here we met and parted company,

why should there gain be such a grief to me?

this sense of loss, this heavy cross,

dear savior take this burden off i prey,

and show me heaven is but  a little way.

 

A little way? the sentence i repeat,

hoping and longing to extract some sweet,

to mingle with the bitter from thy loving hand,

i take the cup that i cannot understand,

and in my weakness give myself to thee,

although it seem so very very far,

to that dear home were my beloved are,

i know, i know that it is not so,

oh! give me faith to believe when i say,

that they are gone, gone but a little way
