Sandra's Sweet Memories

Friday night, my husband and I were watching a movie on TV. The theme song playing at the end was so beautiful we watched the words fly by and listened to the entire song. The auto harp was featured and it brought back so many memories.

My Dad was the Pastor of a church in Kentucky that very much resembled this one that I found on the internet. From age 10 to 15, I spent the happiest years of my life in 2 tiny little Baptist churches in the great state of KY. The church had a piano, but not always someone to play it. That is when the auto harp kicked in. We sang all the old hymns and harmonized with that auto harp. When the movie ended, I pulled up my good friend YouTube. The is what I found.

Farther Along, on auto harp, the words are at the bottom of the post. Sing along, I did and AM. this is one of the songs my Dad and I did as a duet, many times.

I do realize Brad sounds better than the auto harp and some of you may never have heard one.

Sing with Brad Paisley, don't forget to harmonize

Tempted and tried we're oft made to wonder
Why it should be thus all the day long
While there are others living about us
Never molested though in the wrong
Farther along we'll know all about it
Farther along we'll understand why
Cheer up my brother live in the sunshine
We'll understand it all by and by
When death has come and taken our loved ones
It leaves our home so lonely and drear
And then do we wonder why others prosper
Living so wicked year after year
Repeat chorus

When we see Jesus coming in glory
When he comes down from his home in the sky
Then we shall meet him in that bright mansion
We'll understand it all by and by
