1. The world of forms and changes
Is just now so confused
That there is found some danger
In everything you use;
But this is consolation
To every blood-washed child,
The Lord will change our station, After a while.

Chorus
After a while, After a while,
The Lord will change our station,
After a while.

 

2. Old Satan tries to throw down
Everything that's good;
He'd fix a way to confound
The righteous, if he could,
But thanks to God Almighty
That he cannot beguile;
And we will be done fighting
After a while.

 

3. There are some men and women
That help the devil on
By constantly complaining
Of everything that's done.
They want to be called Christians,
And all their badness hide;
God will open the secret,
After a while.
