Hi,

William Clayton claimed to have written All is Well from an old English folk song. What is it?


All is Well- Shape note version
Lyrics: American Vocalist, 1848
Tune: Arr. D. H. Mansfield / Northampton Harmony.
Meter: P.M.

What's this that steals upon my frame,
Is it death? Is it death?
That soon will quench this vital flame,
Is it death? Is it death?
If this be death, I soon shall be
From ev'ry pain and sorrow free.
I shall the king of glory see.
All is well. All is well.

COME COME YE SAINTS- William Clayton

Come, come, ye saints, no toil nor labor fear;
But with joy wend your way.
Though hard to you this journey may appear,
Grace shall be as your day.
Tis better far for us to strive our useless cares from us to drive;
Do this, and joy your hearts will swell -
All is well! All is well!

Anyone?

Richie

Looking at the format it seems to be related to the family of songs known as 'Captain Kidd, Death of Admiral Benbow' A large number of different songs imitated the format.

One source says it's an English drinking song, another an English folk song.

You're right- it is from the song Captain Kidd song cycle.

This would need to be pre- 1840.

Probably "All Is Well" is a remake of "Begone, Dull Care". Click here.
