We'll Understand It Better
Refrain  [1]  [2]  [3]  [4] 
Contemporary
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 tossed and driven
On the restless sea of time;
Sombre 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.
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 His word,
We will understand it
Better by and by.
Trials dark on every hand,
And we cannot understand
All the ways that 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.
Temptations, hidden snares
Often take us unawares,
And our hearts are made to bleed
For many 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.

We are often tossed and driven on the restless sea of time;
Sombre 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.

Refrain
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 His word,
We will understand it better by and by.

Trials dark on every hand, and we cannot understand
All the ways that 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.

Temptations, hidden snares often take us unawares,
And our hearts are made to bleed for many 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.
