please help me find this old song. it contains these lines
"by and by when the morning comes
when the saints of God are gathered home
we will tell the story how we've overcome
we will understand it better by and by"

"we will understand it better by and by".

thanks

Hi Faddy:

The hymn is " We Will Understand it Better By and By"

The first verse is

Trials dark on every hand and we cannot understand
All the ways that God could lead us to that blessed promised land,
But He'll guide us with His eye and we'll follow till we die
We shall understand it better by and by.

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

The lines you quoted above are the refrain (you got it all right).

Here is a link to the comple song, but I've never heard the first two verses. To me it starts with the third verse.

another verse.....oft our cherished plans have failed
                              disappointments have prevailed
                              and we've wandered in the darkness
                              heavy-hearted and alone
                              but we're trusting  in the Lord
                              and according to His word
                              we will understand it better bye and bye

We are often tossed and driven
On the restless sea of time.
Somber skies and howling tempests
Oft succeed a bright sunshine.
In that land of perfect day,
When the mists have rolled away,
We will understand it better by and by.

Chorus
By and by when the morning comes.
When the saints of God are gathered home.
We'll tell the story how we've overcome,
For we'll understand it better by and by.

We are often destitute
Of the things that life demands;
Want of food and want of shelter,
Thirsty hills and barren lands.
We are trusting in the Lord
And according to God's Word
We will understand it better by and by.

Trials dark on ev'ry hand
And we cannot understand
All the ways that God would lead us
To that blessed promised land.
But He guides us with His eye.
And we'll follow till we die
For we'll understand it better by and by.

Oft our cherished plans have failed,
Disappointments have prevailed
And we've wandered in the darkness
Heavy-hearted 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 some tho'tless word or deed.
And we wonder why the test
When we try to do our best
But we'll understand it better by and by.
