Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Out into the darkness,
Peals the old church bell,
And I hear it saying,
“Brethren, it is well.”
“It is well, it is well,”
Let the tidings swell,
Over hill and dell,
Like a blessed pray’r,
Out upon the air
Sound the message, “it is well.”
2 If the bell is telling,
Some soul’s fun’ral knell,
Still it says so softly,
“Brethren, it is well.” [Refrain]
3 God knows all our sorrows,
Loves us tenderly,
And this message sends he,
To a comfort be. [Refrain]
4 Some day we shall enter,
And we’ll know more clearly,
Wherefore “it is well.” [Refrain]Source: Triumphant Songs No.3 #84
