Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.@Isaiah 3:10

Robert Lowry, in Sabbath School Bell No. 2 (New York: Horace Waters, 1860), page 163 (🔊 pdf nwc).

On every sunny mountain,
In every gloomy dell—
Whate’er the robe that wraps the heart,
’Tis with the righteous well.

Refrain

’Tis well, ’tis well,
’Tis with the righteous well;
In pleasure’s light, and sorrow’s night,
’Tis with the righteous well.
’Tis well, ’tis well,
’Tis with the righteous well;
In pleasure’s light, and sorrow’s night,
’Tis with the righteous well.

What words of holy comfort!
Their sweetness who can tell?
Within the vale, and o’er the flood,
’Tis with the righteous well.

Refrain

Tho’ dripping clouds may gather,
And grief the bosom swell,
The trusting heart will ever sing—
’Tis with the righteous well.

Refrain

And when the strife is over,
And hushed the solemn knell,
Within the gates, around the throne,
’Tis with the righteous well.
