From: Gene L. Graham firstname.lastname@example.org.Edu Recorded by Merle Haggard and Bonnie Owens Written by Hazel Souser and Chester Smith WAIT A LITTLE LONGER PLEASE JESUS [E] Here the labor is so hard And the [A] workers, they are [E] tired And our weary hearts are yearnin' for a [B7] rest And I [E] find we're getting anxious To [A] be in that happy [E] home Where we'll receive such [B7] peace and happi-[E] ness. CHORUS [E] But wait a little longer, please [B7] Jesus There are so many wandering out in [E] sin Just a little longer, please [B7] Jesus A few more days to get our loved ones [E] in. The family's scattered here and there And oh, Lord we love them dear Maybe we can help them find the way But if waiting is the cost Dear, oh, Lord they might be lost And that's the only reason why we say. CHORUS
