Farther Along        ( Steven / Baxter)

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 tho' in the wrong

Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
Cheer up, my brother, come 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

Farther along ..

Faithful till death said our loving, Master
A few more days to labor and wait
Toils of the road will then seem as nothing
When we sweep thru that beautiful gate

Farther along ..

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 ...
