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!

I sleep upon the billow’s crest,
Like John upon the Master’s breast;
For He my every fear doth quell
With His good message, All is well.

Refrain

By grief and sin thy soul oppressed,
And all around thee in unrest,
How blest to hear the lookout’s bell,
And cheer our hearts with All is well.

Refrain

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

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
