4Him – It Is Well lyrics
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.
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--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!
And, Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trump shall re-sound and the Lord shall descend,
"Even, so," it is well with my soul.
Words: Horatio G. Spafford, Music: Philip P. Bliss
Arranged by: Michael Omartian, Mark Harris, Andy Chrisman,
Marty Magehee, Kirk Sullivan

  • U
    Whether peaceful or sorrowful, whatever is going on in my life, I have no need to worry. Tho the devil has targeted me, and things become difficult, remember christ loves me and shed his blood for me. To god be the glory for I am his. All my sins have been forgiven because christ has redeemed me. My soul shall praise the most high. Hasten the return of the redeemer when heaven shall be revealed and the lord jesus christ shall be heralded as he descends in all his glory. Hallelujah.
