It is well…

  1. When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,

    When sorrows like sea billows roll;

    Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,

    It is well, it is well, with my soul.

    It is well, with my soul,

    It is well, it is well, with my soul.

    Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

    Let this blest assurance control,

    That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

    And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

    My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!

    My sin, not in part but the whole,

    Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,

    Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

    For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:

    If Jordan above me shall roll,

    No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life

    Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

    But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,

    The sky, not the grave, is our goal;

    Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!

    Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

    And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,

    The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;

    The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,

    Even so, it is well with my soul.

    This song has not left my heart for several days. The Lord has brought MUCH contentment in my heart. He is good, He is faithful, He is all that I have ever hoped and wanted.Β 
    It is well, with my soul.

  1. I have been listening to this song ALL week long.
    This song gives me such peace and joy, especially because of the history behind this song. A man loses his 4 daughters and can write, It is well…I don't know if I could do that.
    Love you!
