Farther Along



Farther Along

Words: Traditional

Tempted and tried will oft’ me 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 more about it.
Farther along we’ll understand why;
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine
We’ll understand it all by and by.

When death has come and taken our loved ones
Leaving our homes so lonely and drear;
Then do we wonder how others prosper
Living so wicked year after year.

Farther along we’ll know more about it.
Farther along we’ll understand why;
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine
We’ll understand it all by and by.

Often I wonder why I must journey
Over a road so rugged and steep;
While there are others living in comfort,
While with the lost I labor and weep.

Farther along we’ll know more about it.
Farther along we’ll understand why;
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine
We’ll understand it all by and by

Faithful ’til death, said our loving Master,
A few more days labor and wait;
Toils of the road will then be as nothing,
As we sweep through the beautiful gates.

Farther along we’ll know more about it.
Farther along we’ll understand why;
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine
We’ll understand it all by and by.

When we see Jesus coming in glory;
When He comes from His home in the sky;
Then we shall meet Him in that bright mansion.
We’ll understand it all by and by.

Farther along we’ll know more about it.
Farther along we’ll understand why;
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine
We’ll understand it all by and by.
