Lyrics

Belovèd, It is well!
God’s ways are al­ways right,
And per­fect love is o’er them all
Tho’ far above our sight.

Belovèd, It is well!
Tho’ deep and sore the smart,
The hand that wounds knows how to bind
And heal the brok­en heart.

Belovèd, It is well!
Tho’ sor­row clouds our way,
’Twill on­ly make the joy more dear
That ush­ers in the day.

Belovèd, It is well!
The path that Je­sus trod,
Tho’ rough and strait and dark it be,
Leads home to Heav’n and God.
