Representative Text

1 Come out into the sunlight,
Out from the gloomy dell;
Why clothe the heart in sadness?
‘Tis with the righteous well!

Chorus:
‘Tis well, ‘tis will,
‘Tis with the righteous well!
‘Tis well, ‘tis well,
‘Tis with the righteous well!

2 Ye timid, doubting servants,
No more your sorrows tell;
Cheer up! give God the glory,
‘Tis with the righteous well! [Chorus]

3 He giveth songs of triumph,
Why sound the solemn knell?
Thy face should glow with gladness,
‘Tis with the righteous well! [Chorus]

4 If heirs to heav’nly mansions,
Where ye with Christ shall dwell;
Thine is the blest assurance,
‘Tis with the righteous well! [Chorus]
