Farther along
by Steven & Baxter                                Flying Burrito Brothers and many others

Tempted and tried we're oft made to wonder

Why it should be thus all the day long,

While there are thers 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, - live in the sunshine

We'll understand it all by and by.

When death has come and taken our loved ones,

I t 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,

As we sweep thru the 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 ...
