Farther Along

Tempted and tried, were oft made to wonder
Why it should be thus all the day long;
While there are others living about us,
Never molested, though in the wrong.
Farther along well know more about it,
Farther along well understand why;
Cheer up, my brother, live in the sunshine,
Well understand it all by and by.

Sometimes I wonder why I must suffer,
Go in the rain, the cold, and the snow,
When there are many living in comfort,
Giving no heed to all I can do.

Tempted and tried, how often we question
Why we must suffer year after year,
Being accused by those of our loved ones,
Een though weve walked in Gods holy fear.
