Full Text

1. Hark! a voice from Eden stealing,
Such as but to angels known,
Hope its song of cheer is singing,
"It is better farther on."

Chorus:
It is better farther on
It is better farther on,
It is better farther on,
It is better farther on.

2. Hope is singing, still is singing,
Softly in an under tone;
Singing as if God had taught it,
"It is better farther on." [Chorus]

3. Night and day it sings the same song,
Sings it when I sit alone;
Sings it so the heart may hear it,
"It is better farther on." [Chorus]

4. On the grave it sits and sings it,
Sings it when the heart would groan;
Sings it when the shadows darken,
"It is better farther on." [Chorus]

5. Farther on! Oh! how much farther?
Count the mile-stones one by one;
No! no counting, only trusting,
"It is better farther on." [Chorus]
