Farther Along

  8   9   8    7     
Tempt-ed and tried,

  8   -8    7  -8  7   7
we're oft made to won-der

 9   9    -10  9   8  
Why it should be thus

 8  -8   7   -8
all the day long,

  8     9    8   7   8  
While there are oth-ers

-8   7 -8   7  7
liv-ing a-bout us,

 8  9 -10   9  8   
Nev-er mo-lest-ed,

-8   8 -8    7
tho in the wrong.

chorus

 8    9 -10  9   
Far-ther a-long

  8    -8   7 -8   7   7
we'll know all a-bout it,

 8    9 -10  9   
Far-ther a-long

  8    8 -8     7  -8
we'll un-der-stand why;

  8    9  8   7   8    
Cheer up my broth-er,

 -8   7 -8   7    7
live in the sun-shine,

  8    9 -10   9   8  
We'll un-der-stand it

-8   8 -8   7
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 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.
