Farther Along (5:20) (Featured Showcase Vol 5 Track)

Songwriter:. Rev. W. A. Fletcher

Tempted and tired we’re oft made to wander (I think “wonder” is what is meant)
Why it should be thus all the day long,
While there are others living about us,
Never molested though in the wrong.”

“Sometimes I wonder why I must suffer,
Go in the cold, the rain, and the show,
While many wicked live in great splendor,
Heedless of where at last they must go.”

“Tempted and tried how often we question
Why we must suffer year after year,
Being accused by those of our loved ones,
E’en though we walk in God’s holy fear.”

“Often when death has taken our loved ones,
Leaving our home so lone and so drear,
Then do we wonder why others prosper
Living so wicked year after year.”

“’Faithful till death,’ saith our loving Master;
Short is our time to labor and wait.
Then will our toiling seem to be nothing
When we shall pass the heavenly gate.”

“Soon we shall se our dear loving Savior,
Hear the last trumpet sound through the sky;
Then we will meet those gone on before us,
And we shall know and understand why.”
