​Farther Along

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album The Old Country Church (1969).

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

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

When we see Jesus coming in glory
When he comes from his home in the sky
Then we shall join him in that great mansion
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 till death said our loving Master
A few more days to labor and wait
Toils of the road will them seem as nothing
As we sweep through the beautiful gates
