343. It Is Better Farther On

1 Hark! I hear Hope sweetly singing
Softly in an undertone,
Singing as if God had taught her,
“It is better farther on.”
Night and day I hear her singing—
Singing while I sit alone,
Singing so my heart may hear it,
“It is better farther on.”

2 When my faith took hold on Jesus,
Light divine within me shone,
And I know since that glad moment,
“It is better farther on.”
I have plunged into the fountain,
Flowing free for everyone;
I am saved and Hope is singing,
“It is better farther on.”

3 Farther on, but how much farther?
Count the milestones one by one;
No, no counting, only trusting—
“It is better farther on.”
Rest, my soul, in hope forever,
all my doubts and fears are gone;
Jesus is my Savior, Keeper—
“It is better farther on.”
