need lyrics to "Farther on"

I love this song! I want it sang at my graveside! Hope it's the one your looking for!

Better Farther On

As we travel through this desert
Storms beset us all the way,
But beyond the river Jordon
Lies a land of endless day

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

Oh my brother are you weary
Of the roughness of the way
Does your strength begin to fail you
Let the Savior lead the way

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

At my grave oh still be singing
Do not weep for one that's gone
Sing it as we once did sing it
"It is better, Farther on!"

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

As you travel through the desert
Storms beset us on the way
Just beyond the river Jordan
Lies a field of endless day

Cho
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
At 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 take you to God's throne
He Who dyed His garments for you
And the wine-press trod alone

At my grave O still be singing
Though you weep for One that's gone
Sing it as you once did sing it
It is better Farther ON
