Sometime We'll Understand

Maxwell N. Cornelius
Charles H. Gabriel, 1856-1932
Not now, but in the coming years,
It may be in the better land,
We'll read the meaning of our tears,
And there, sometime, we'll understand.
Then trust in God through all thy days;
Fear not, for He doth hold thy hand;
Though dark thy way, still sing and praise;
Sometime, sometime, we'll understand.
We'll catch the broken threads again,
And finish what we here began;
Heav'n will the mysteries explain,
And then, ah, then we'll understand.
We'll know why clouds instead of sun
Were over manya cherished plan;
Why song has ceased when scarce begun:
'Tis there, sometime, we'll understand.
Why what we long for most of all
Eludes so oft our eager hand;
Why hopes are crushed and castles fall
Up there, sometime, we'll understand.
God knows the way, He holds the key,
He guides us with unerring hand;
Sometime, with tearless eyes we'll see:
Yes, there, up there, we'll understand.
