Farther Along

Tempted and tried we're oft 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 and 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

Faithful till death saith our loving master
A few more days to labor and wait
Toils of the road shall then seem as nothing
When we pass though that beautiful gate


When we see Jesus coming in glory
When he comes down from his home in the sky
Then shall we greet him in those bright mansions
We'll understand it all by and by
