Looking for lyrics and chords to "Father Alone"

Do you mean Farther Along?

here's the words to it just in case.

Farther Along
Key of E

D G D
Tempted and tried we're oft' made to wander.
E A7
Why it should be thus, all the day long.
D G D
While there are others living about us,
A7 D
Never molested, 'tho in the wrong.

D G D
Farther along, we'll know all about it.
E A7
Farther along, we'll understand why.
D G D
Cheer up my brother, live in the sunshine.
A7 D
We'll understand it all by and by.

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

Chorus"¦.

Faithful 'til death, said our loving Master.
A few more days to labour and wait.
Tolls of the road will then seem as nothing,
As we sweep through the Beautiful Gate.

Chorus"¦.

When we see Jesus, coming in glory,
When He comes from His home in the sky.
Then we shall meet Him in that bright mansion.
We'll understand it all by and by.

Chorus"¦

Often I wonder why I must journey
Over a road so rugged and steep;
While there are others living in comfort;
While with the lost I labour and weep.

I first heard this hymn, believe it or not, years ago on a Charlie Brown special, about a little girl who is a friend of Charlie and gets leukemia. I liked it then and I like it now, now that my cousin has been diagnosed with cancer. I was trying to remember the words and title, and was so glad to find this site. I will give her this song. Perhaps we will sing it together.
