We'll Understand It All By And By
by W. E. Lindsay
Tempted and tried we often do wonder,
Why it should be thus all the day long;
While there are others living about us,
Never molested, though living wrong.
When death has come and taken our loved ones,
Leaving our homes so lonely and drear;
Then we do wonder why others prosper,
Living so wicked year after year.
Often I wonder why I must leave home,
Go in the rain, the cold and the snow,
While there are others living in confort,
Giving no heed to all I can do.
Faithful till death, saith our loving Saviour,
Just a while longer labor and wait;
These trials here will seem to be nothing,
When we sweep thro' the beautiful gate.
Further along we'll know more about it,
Further along we'll understand why;
Cheer up, my brother, live in the sunshine,
We'll understand it all by and by.
