Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

212. 'Tis Well with Me

1 Where’er my Savior’s hand may lead,
Whate’er my lot may be;
I will not murmur nor repine,
I’ll know ’tis well with me.

Refrain:
Though storms sweep o’er my trembling bark,
And waves around me swell;
Still this my ransomed soul shall sing,
’Tis well with me, ’tis well.

2 Since Jesus shed His precious blood
That I might ransomed be;
I know He’ll safely keep my soul,
Whate’er befalleth me. [Refrain]

3 Though friends forsake and I alone
The narrow way pursue;
Thy grace, dear Lord, I only ask,
My courage to renew. [Refrain]

4 Should earthly treasures fade away,
His promise still I’ll plead;
And trust Him, for I know He will
Supply my every need. [Refrain]

5 Since I am fully saved from sin,
My joy no tongue can tell;
And all along the way I’ll sing,
’Tis well with me, ’tis well. [Refrain]
