Farther On
First printed 1877; public domain

As we travel through the desert,
Storms beset us by the way,
But beyond the river Jordan
Lies a field of endless day.

Farther on, still go farther,
Count the milestones one by one.
Jesus will forsake you never.
It is better farther on.

O, my brother, are you weary
Of the roughness of the way?
Does your strength begin to fail you,
And your vigor to decay?


Jesus, Jesus will go with you,
He will lead you to the throne,
He, Who dyed His garments for you,
And the winepress wrought alone.


At my grave, O, still be singing,
Though you weep for one that's gone.
Sing it as we once did sing it,
It is better farther on.
