John Scofield - Just A Little While To Stay Here lyrics

Soon this life will all be over
And our pilgrimage will end
Soon we'll take our heavenly journey
Yeah, and be at home with friends again

Heaven's gates are standing open
Waiting for our entrance there
Some sweet day we're going over
And all the beauties there to share
That's why I'm saying

Just a little while to stay here
Just a little while to wait
Just a little while to labor
In the path that's always straight

Oh, just a little more of sorrow
In this low and sinful state
Then we'll enter heaven's portals
Sweeping through those pearly gates

Just a little while to stay here
Just a little while to wait, oh
Just a little while to labor
In the path that's always straight

Oh, just a little more of sorrow
In this low and sinful state
Then we'll enter heaven's portals
Sweeping through the pearly gates
