It IS Well


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, 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.
 
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
 
My sins, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sins, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear them no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
 
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with 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.

    1. Yes, the story of the writer is also quite interesting, I believe he lost his children and wife and through all that he was able to encourage himself and write the words to this song.
