Tempted and tried we're oft made to wonder
Why should it be thus all the day long
When there are others living about us
Never molested though 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.

--- Instrumental ---

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.

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...
