We’ll Understand it Better By and By Lyrics
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, 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.
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 the Word,
we will understand it better by and by. [Refrain]
3 Temptations, hidden snares,
often take us unawares,
and our hearts are made to bleed for
any 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]
We’ll Understand It Better By and By Hymn Story
“We’ll Understand it Better By and By” is a hymn that was written by Charles Albert Tindley. It was first published in 1905.
The world can be a cruel place some times even for the saints.
You may pray hard and demonic forces still rage about your soul.
Saints can and do suffer from diseases such as cancer which affect everyone else.
All this can make Christians start to question why the Lord is allowing all this. This song tells us that we’ll understand it better by and by.
