We'll Work till Jesus Comes
Words by Elizabeth Mills
Music by William Miller

John 9:4
"I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day:
the night cometh, when no man can work."

            O land of rest, for thee I sigh!
            When will the moment come,
            When I shall lay my armor by,
            And dwell in peace at home?

              Chorus
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              And we'll be gathered home.

            To Jesus Christ I fled for rest;
            He bade me cease to roam,
            And lean for succor on His breast,
            'ill He conduct me Home.

              Chorus
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              And we'll be gathered home.

            I sought at once my Savior's side,
            No more my steps shall roam,
            With Him I'll brave death's chilling tide,
            And reach my heav'nly home.

              Chorus
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              We'll work till Jesus comes,
              And we'll be gathered home.
