Farther Along


Tempted and tried we're often made to wonder
Why it should be thus all the day long
While there are others living about us
Never molested though in the wrong.

Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
Cheer up, my brother, come sing in the sunshine
We'll understand it all by and by.

When death has come and taken our loved ones
It leaves our home so lonely and drear
Then do we wonder why others prosper
Living so wicked year after year.

Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
Cheer up, my brother, come sing in the sunshine
We'll understand it all by and by.

Faithful till death said our loving master
A few more days to labor and wait
Toils of the road will then seem as nothing
When we sweep through that beautiful gate.

Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
Cheer up, my brother, come sing in the sunshine
We'll understand it all by and by
We'll understand it all by and by.
