Hymn/Song Information

WE'LL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER BY AND BY




We are tossed and driven
on the restless sea of time;
Somber skies and howling tempests
oft succeed a bright sunshine;
In that land of perfect day,
when the mists have rolled away,
We will understand it
better by and by.

By and by,
when the morning comes,
When the saints of God
are gathered home,
We'll tell the story
how we've overcome,
For we'll understand it
better by and by.



We are often destitute of
the things that life demands,
Want of food and want of shelter,
thirsty hills and barren lands;
We are trusting in the Lord,
and according to God's Word,
We will understand it better
by and by.

By and by,
when the morning comes,
When the saints of God
are gathered home,
We'll tell the story
how we've overcome,
For we'll understand it
better by and by.



Trials dark on every hand,
and we cannot understand
All the ways that God could lead us
to that blessed promised land;
But He guides us with His eye,
and we'll follow till we die,
For we'll understand it
better by and by.

By and by,
when the morning comes,
When the saints of God
are gathered home,
We'll tell the story
how we've overcome,
For we'll understand it
better by and by.



Temptations, hidden snares
often take us unawares,
And our hearts are made to bleed
for a thoughtless word or deed;
And we wonder why the test
when we try to do our best,
But we'll understand it
better by and by.

By and by,
when the morning comes,
When the saints of God
are gathered home,
We'll tell the story
how we've overcome,
For we'll understand it
better by and by.
