287 - 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.

 

Chorus:

Farther along, we'll know all

about it. Farther along, we'll

understand why. Cheer up

my brother, live in the Son-

shine. 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 'til death," said our

loving Master, "a few more

days to labor and wait."

Toils of the road will then

seem as nothing as we sweep

through the beautiful gate.

 

When we see Yahshua 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.
