        What cheering words are these!
        Their sweetness who can tell!
        In time and to eternal days,
        “’Tis with the righteous well.”

        In ev’ry state secure,
        Kept by Jehovah’s eye,
        ’Tis well with them while life endure,
        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 on the mount
        They feast on dying 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 hosts of ransomed souls,
         Made to salvation wise.”
                                                     John Kent

Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him....Isa 3:10

It is well with the righteous always.  From the beginning of the year to the end of the year, from the first gathering of evening shadows until the day-star shines, in all conditions, and under all circumstances, it shall be well with the righteous.  It is so well with him that we could not imagine it to be better, for he is well fed, he feeds upon the flesh and blood of Jesus; he is well clothed, he wears the imputed righteousness of Christ; he is well housed, he dwells in God; he is well married, his soul is knit in bonds of marriage union to Christ; he is well provided for, for the Lord is his Shepherd; he is well endowed, for heaven is his inheritance.
