This hymn has been part of the LDS hymnal since 1851. The text of this hymn was written in 1846 by English Mormon convert William Clayton (1814-1879). The melody for this hymn came from a popular English folk song "All is well". Clayton was among the first Mormon pioneers to make the trek from Nauvoo, Illinois to Utah. The text of this song was written while on the trail of that journey in response to news of the birth of his son back in Nauvoo (1). The original hymn words and music in SATB format is available here.
Of note, while this hymn is originally LDS, it can also be found in the hymnal for both the United Church of Christ and Seventh-day Adventists (2).
