Meter: Long Meter Half (8,8)
íTis my desire with God to walk
íTill the warfare is over, hallelujah,
And with His children pray and talk
íTill the warfare is over, hallelujah,

Chorus:

Cry Amen, pray on
íTill the warfare is over, hallelujah.

íTis my desire above the rest
íTill the warfare is over, hallelujah,
To lean my head on Jesusí breast
íTill the warfare is over, hallelujah,

(Chorus)
