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.
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 we see Jesus, coming in glory
When he comes from His home in the sky
Then we shall meet him in that bright mansion
Well understand it all by and by.
