1 I hear a sweet voice ringing clear,
All is well! All is well!
It is my Father's voice I hear;
All is well! All is well!
Where'er I walk that voice is heard:
It is my God, my Father's word,
"Fear not, but trust: I am the Lord:"
All is well! All is well!

2 Clouds cannot long obscure my sight;
All is well! All is well!
I know there is a land of light;
All is well! All is well!
From strength to strength, from day to day,
I tread along the world's highway;
Or often stop to sing or say,
All is well! All is well!

3 In morning hours, serene and bright,
All is well! All is well!
In evening hours or darkening night
All is well! All is well!
And when to Jordan's side I come,
'Midst chilling waves and raging foam,
Oh, let me sing as I go home,
All is well! All is well!

Amen.
