LEVAS2 (207) We'll understand it better by and by


Piano    PARTS
1 We are often tossed and driv’n
on the restless sea of time,
Somber skies and howling tempest
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.
Refrain:
By and by when the morning comes,
When the saints of God are gathered home,
We’ll tell the story how we’re overcome;
For we’ll understand it by and by, by and by.
2 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, by and by. [Refrain]
3 Trials dark on ev’ry 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, by and by. Refrain
4 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, by and by. [Refrain]
