“IT IS WELL”

Beloved, it is well!
God’s ways are always right;
And perfect love is o’er them all,
Though far above our sight.

Beloved, it is well!
Though deep and sore the smart;
The hand that wounds knows how to bind
And heal the broken heart.

Beloved, it is well!
Though sorrow clouds my way,
‘Twill only make the joy more dear
That ushers in the day.

Beloved, it is well!
The path in faith that’s trod,
Though rough, and strait, and dark it be,
Leads home to Heaven, you, and God.
