Hymn Lyrics | When Morning Comes {we will understand it better by and by}

By and by, when the morning comes, All the saints of God are gathering home, Tell the story how we’ve overcome, We will understand it better by and by. HYMN lyrics

Trials dark on every hand, and we cannot understand
All the ways that God will 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,
All the saints of God are gathering home,
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, heavyhearted and alone;
But we’re trusting in the Lord, and according to His Word,
We will understand it better by and by.

Temptations, hidden snares often take us unawares,
And our hearts are made to bleed for each thoughtless word or deed;
And we wonder why the test when we try to do our best,
But will understand it better by and by.


Deuteronomy 29:29
“The secret things belong to the Lord our God…”

Romans 8:28
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.”

Hebrews 4:9-16
So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.
Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession.
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
