It Is Well

The story of Horatio Spafford has always been amazing to me. How someone who had lost so much, could write a song so beautiful, out of such monumental grief. And to think that during that utterly difficult time of his life, he was STILL able to PRAISE GOD and thank Him for being redeemed!

                      


IT IS WELL

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.

It is well (it is well),
with my soul (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 hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
(Refrain)

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to His 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 pain shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to 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.

Beautiful!
Thank you for taking the time to post the lyrics along with the video clip. It was nice to follow along as the ladies sang.

Love the new look to your blog.
What a darling couple you two are!

May this day be blessed.

One of my favorite hymns. Our family often sings it in our worship and devotion time.
