"Farther Along"

Verse 1:
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.

(Chorus)
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.

Verse 2
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

Verse 4
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
-------------------------
My church uses this often as the recessional at funerals. We never sing verse 3 and I doubt anyone knows it

Found in:
"The New National Baptist Hymnal" (1977)

"Songs of Zion" 1981 - (Methodist)

"African American Heritage Hymnal" (2001). This songbook is a compilation of music used in various African-American denominations rather than being that for a particular one.
