It Is Well with My Soul

Written by Horatio G. Spafford, 1873. Includes Psalm 146:1 See Wikipedia for the background.

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.

Refrain: > 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.
