Farther Along - Traditional
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 brothers, live in the sunshine; We'll understand it all by and by.
Faithful to death is our loving saviour, A few more days labour and wait. Toils of the road will then be as nothing, As we walk through that beautiful gate.
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.
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 labour and weep.
