312 (S.M.) John Kent

What cheering words are these?

Their sweetness who can tell?

In time and in eternity,

'Tis with the righteous well.

In ev'ry state secure

Kept as Jehovah's eye,

'Tis well with them while life endures,

And well when called to die.

'Tis well when joys arise,

'Tis well when sorrows flow;

'Tis well when darkness veils the skies,

And strong temptations blow.

'Tis well when at His throne

They wrestle, weep, and pray;

'Tis well when at His feet they groan,

Yet bring their wants away.

'Tis well when on the mount

They feast on saving love:

And 'tis as well in God's account

When they the furnace prove.

'Tis well when Jesus calls,

“From earth and sin arise,

Join with the host of spotless souls,

Made to salvation wise.”
