Tempted and tried, were oft made to wonder
Why it should be thus all day long
While there are others living about us
Never molested though in the wrong
When death has come and taken our loved ones
It leaves our home so lonely and drear
Then do we wonder why others prosper
Living so wicked year after year
Farther along well know all about it
Farther along well understand why
Cheer up my brother, live in the sunshine
Well understand it all, by and by

Faithful til death, said our loving master
A few more days to labor and wait
Toils of the road will then seem as nothing
As we sweep through the beautiful gates

Repeat chorus
