It is Well with My Soul

Hymn lyrics by Horatio G. Spafford,
Music by Philip P. Bliss
Verse 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 (it is well)
  • With my soul (with my soul),
  • It is well, it is well with my soul.
Verse 2
  • 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.
Verse 3
  • 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!
Verse 4
  • 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.
Verse 5
  • 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!
Verse 6
  • 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.
