The lookout answers, All is well

Full 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.”

“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]
