Are you sure it's "he"? I have some bluegrass tune in my head that has "meet me at.." beginning the verse. I think the phrase in that one is "or will you wait a little longer.." I'll try to look it up.

darn! I'm sure I have the song you want on a great STanley brothers tape - it also has Angel band on it. But I can't find the tape. I notice that Stanley brother lyrics are hard to find on the net.

The great song that got away...

The song "Will He Wait a Little Longer" is on Ralph Stanley's album Cry From the Cross on the Rebel label. I can't make out the words too well, but the chorus goes something like:

Will he wait a little longer
There's so many hours I've sinned
Will he wait a little longer
Give us time to gather in.

(RALPH RULES!)

Hold the phone! I have been looking for the complete words to Wait A Little Longer, Please Jesus for years. When I clicked on Banjer's link, it said access was "Forbidden" (where is this site? - Deutschland?). Could some hypothetical person like, oh, say, Banjer post the words right here or tell me how to gain entrance to that there Gospel site?

Merci bien,

James, in France.

From: Gene L. Graham

WAIT A LITTLE LONGER PLEASE JESUS
Recorded by Merle Haggard and Bonnie Owens
Written by Hazel Souser and Chester Smith

[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 anxiousv 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

Huh!!, I didn't do that...wonder who forgot to put the / after the < ?.....It almost seems like something I'd do, but that one ain't mine. But thanks to whomever, (probably Joe O) it didn't occur to me that the URL could also be made into a link. That might be the answer to the request on a previous thread, cut & paste the URL and make it the clicky thingie at the same time. Or is this an idea we've already discussed?

My transcription:

WILL HE WAIT A LITTLE LONGER
Written by Carter Stanley
As sung by the Stanley Brothers on "20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection: Best of the Stanley Brothers" (2002)

1. On cruel Calvary where he suffered,
There he died upon the cross,
That we might be saved, my brother,
Free from sin and not be lost.

CHORUS: Will he wait a little longer?
There's so many are in sin.
Will he wait a little longer,
Give us time to gather in?

2. I vision now that mangled body.
I can see the nail-scarred hand.
When he calls from way out yonder,
I'll hear and understand.

3. Many loved ones gone before me,
They rest with him today,
But should he call before we're ready,
I can almost hear them say:
