Father Along


  C		 C7     F	    C
Tempted and tried we’re oft’ made to wonder
		   D7		  G
Why it should be thus all the day long;
	        C   C7  F      C
While there are others living about us,
		G	      C
Never molested, though in the wrong.


Chorus:

 C		C7  F	     C
Farther along we’ll know all about it.
		   D7	      G
Farther along we’ll understand why.
	    C	  C7  F	   	C
Cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine;
		   G	      C
We’ll understand it all by and by.


Faithful to death is our loving saviour,
A few more days labour and wait.
Toils of the road will then be as nothing,
As we walk through that beautiful gate.


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.


Often I wonder why I must journey
Over a road so rugged and steep;
While there are others living in comfort;
While with the lost I labour and weep.
