Representative Text

1 The night is dark, the waves run high,
Nor moon or stars in yonder sky;
What cheer above the stormy swell?
The lookout’s answer, “All is well.”

Refrain:
“All is well!” “All is well!”
What cheer to know that “all is well!”
“All is well!” “All is well!”
The lookout answers “All is well.”

2 I sleep upon the billows crest,
Like John upon the Master’s breast;
For He my ev’ry fear doth quell
With His good message, “All is well.” [Refrain]

3 By grief and sin thy soul oppressed,
And all around thee in unrest,
How blest to hear the lookout’s bell,
And Jesus calling “All is well.” [Refrain]

4 No sleep e’er dims our pilot’s eyes,
He’s e’er attentive to our cries;
He’ll save us from a sinner’s hell,
And cheer our hearts with “All is well.” [Refrain]

5 Rest peacefully upon the deep,
For Jesus evermore will keep;
The word pass on, to others tell,
The Lookout’s answer, “All is well.” [Refrain]
