We'll Understand It Better By And By

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 are rolled away,
We will understand it better by and by.

Refrain:
By and by, when the morning comes,
When all the saints 
of God are gathered home,
We will tell the story 
how we've overcome,
And 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.
(Refrain)

Trials dark on every hand, 
And we cannot understand
All the ways of God would 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.
(Refrain)

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.
(Refrain)
