(traditional)

Information:
This traditional gospel tune was recorded by Elvis on May 27, 1966, at RCA's Nashville studios.

Lyrics:

1. Well children by and by oh when the morning comes
All the saints of God together they come
We will tell the story how the Lord will come
And we'll understand Him better by and by
 
Trials dark on every hand and we cannot understand
All the ways God will lead us to the blessed promised land
He will guide us with His eye and we'll follow till we die
And we'll understand Him better by and by
 
1. (repeat)
 
Temptation's hidden snares often take the sun away
And our hearts are made to bleed for some 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
 
1. (repeat)
 
And we'll understand Him better by and by
