Farther Along by Josh Garrels borrows a refrain from the old song as a device to structure his new lyrics and music.
From Garrels’ classic Love & War & The Sea Inbetween.
There is so much that we will only understand by and by.
And one day when the sky rolls back on us
Some rejoice and the others fuss
‘Cause every knee must bow and tongue confess
The son of God is forever blessed
This is the kingdom and we’re the guests
So put your voice up to the test
Sing Lord, come soon
Farther along we’ll know all about it
Farther along we’ll understand why
So cheer up my brothers, live in the sunshine
We’ll understand this, all by and by
