Farther Along (5:21)
Written by J.R. Baxter and John Starling.

Arranged by Jason Paul Johnston and Bruce Anthony

Tempted and tried, we’re oft made to wonder
Why it should be thus all the day long;
While there are others living about us,
Never molested, though in the wrong.

Farther along we’ll know all about it,
Farther along we’ll understand why;
Cheer up, my brother, live in the sunshine,
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.

“Faithful till death,” said our loving Master;
A few more days to labor and wait;
Toils of the road will then seem as nothing
When we pass through the heavenly gate.


from Willows Motel, released July 14, 2009
Piano: Betty Johnston
Background Vocals: Betty Johnston, James Neal, Paul Johnston, Asbury Chapel UM Church in Rockwood, TN and St. Bride's Church Choir, Mississauga, Ontario.
