Sunday Hymn — It Is Well

As part of our study of 1 Peter, our Pastor shared the history of the hymn “It Is Well.” You can read it here.

My favorite recording is Chris Rice’s whose arrangement suits the words beautifully.

It Is Well With My Soul
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll –
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to know,
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.

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

My sin — O 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!

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

And Lord, haste the day when the 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!

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