    Trials dark on every hand,
    And we cannot understand
    All the ways that God would lead us
    to that blessed promised land;
    But He’ll guide us with His eye,
    And we’ll follow till we die,
    We will understand it better
    by and by.

    By and by,
    when the morning comes,
    When the saints of God
    are gathered home,
    We will tell the story
    How we’ve overcome;
    We will understand it better
    by and by.



    Oft our cherished plans have failed,
    Disappointments have prevailed,
    And we’ve wandered in the darkness,
    heavy-hearted and alone;
    But we’re trusting in the Lord,
    And according to His 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 will tell the story
    How we’ve overcome;
    We will understand it better
    by and by.



    Temptations, hidden snares
    Often take us unawares,
    And our hearts are made to bleed
    for some 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 will tell the story
    How we’ve overcome;
    We will understand it better
    by and by.
