There's an open gate at the end of the road,
Through which each must go alone.
And there in a light we cannot see,
Our FAther claims His own~
Beyond the gate your loved one
Finds happiness and rest,
And there is comfort in the thought,
That a loving God knows best

Farther Along

Tempted and tried, we're oft made to wonder
Why it should be thus all the day long,
While there are othersliving 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.

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.

Faithful til death, said our loving Master
A few more days to labor and wait,
Toils of the road will then seem as nothing
As we sweep through the beautiful gate.

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,
We'll understand it all by and by.

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.
BLESSED IS HE WHOSE TRANSGRESSION IS
FORGIVEN WHOSE SIN IS COVERED
