This short hymn reminds me that the Savior has all in His hands. He can grant the peace that so many in our world need and desire. He can grant the rest that is so elusive. He watches over us and strives to remind us that “all is well.”
That is my focus today – all is well.
That needs to be my focus tomorrow – all is well.
And on into the future – all is well.
Lori, At Home.
Savior Grand Me Rest and Peace
Lyrics – Lucinda M. Beal Bateman (1877)
Music – James H. Fillmore (1877)
Savior, grant me rest and peace
Let my troubled dreamings cease
With the chiming midnight bell
Teach my heart that “all is well.”
I would trust my all with Thee
All my cares and sorrows flee
Till the breaking light shall tell
Night is past, and “all is well.”
I would seek Thy service, Lord
Leaning on Thy promise word
Let my hourly labors tell
I am Thine, and “all is well.”
