Farther Along

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 till death,” saith our loving Master;
Short is our time to labor and wait;
Then will our toiling seem to be nothing,
When we shall pass the heavenly gate.

Soon with the lord our wonderful savior
We'll be at home beyond the blue sky.
There we shall meet the dear ones awaiting
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 nation
We'll understand it all by and by.
