“Farther Along,” God will Reveal the Truth

by

Farther along, God will reveal to us the truth behind all the tragedy, sadness, and cruelty of the world. Today, we may be suffering and would have to go through a lot in life, but tomorrow we’ll be able to see the light. The only thing that we need to do is to hold on to the Lord. Let’s ask Him for patience and strength to go on through life until the day we meet Him.

“Farther Along:” A Song to Inspire Life

Since we see a lot of bad things happening around us and we even encounter them in our lives, we often want to just run away from everything. We are so afraid to live that we don’t believe in miracles anymore, and our hope of a better world starts to change. However, don’t lose hope, my fellow brothers and sisters, God is on His way. He is waiting for the right time to change everything.

Here, we give you a soulful gospel song that’ll light your path. It’ll give you hope in times of despair. Listen carefully to the words of this song and internalize what it’s trying to say.

In God’s Time

If you have taken the time to listen to this song, we hope that you’ll be drawn closer to the Lord. Yes, life is tough! There are challenges we have to face. There are moments in our life when we lose our loved ones. The wicked are getting richer and luckier in life, but someday all of these will be clear to us. One day, God will tell us why such things happen. Often, we reap the harvest at the right time, therefore, don’t hesitate to be faithful. Don’t be tempted to do evil acts for worldly things. Instead, be kind, be patient, and wait for the Lord.

When death has come and taken our loved ones
It leaves our home so lonely and drear
And then do we wonder why others prosper
Living so wicked year after year

The Origin of the Song

The origin of this hymn dated back in 1911. However, the real author of the song is not precisely known. Since it was claimed by W. B. Stephens, the song has been often credited to him. As for the first recording of the song, it was credited to J. H. Howell’s Carolina Hillbillies who released their recording in the late ’30s.

Folks, remember to hold on to the Lord for someday, everything will be clear to those who are faithful.
