Nigba ife Olugbala,

Ojo ola yio dara

Through the love of God our Savior,
All will be well;
Free and changeless is His favor;
All, all is well.
Precious is the blood that healed us;
Perfect is the grace that sealed us;
Strong the hand stretched out to shield us;
All must be well.

Though we pass through tribulation,
All will be well;
Ours is such a full salvation;
All, all is well.
Happy still in God confiding,
Fruitful, if in Christ abiding,
Holy through the Spirit’s guiding,
All must be well.

We expect a bright tomorrow;
All will be well;
Faith can sing through days of sorrow,
All, all is well.
On our Father’s love relying,
Jesus every need supplying,
Or in living, or in dying,
All must be well.


Mary Bowly (Mrs. Peters), 1813-1856 

Julian's Account: 

 Peters, Mary, née Bowly, daughter of Richard Bowly of Cirencester, was born in 1813, and subsequently married to the Rev. John M. William Peters, sometime Rector of Quennington, Gloucestershire, and died at Clifton, July 29th. 1856. Her prose work, 'The World's History from the Creation to the Accession of Queen Victoria', was published in seven volumes. Several of her hymns were contributed to the Plymouth Brethren, Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs, London, D. Walther, 1842. These, with others, 58 in all, were published by Nisbet and Company, London, 1847, as "Hymns Intended to Help the Communion of Saints". Dr. Walker introduced several from these collections into his "Psalms and Hymns, 1855". Many of these have been repeated in Snepp's "Songs of Grace and Glory, 1872" and other Church of England hymn books.
