IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL

it is well cross

(by Horatio Spafford)

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast 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.

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!

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

This song was composed by Horatio Spafford in 1873 following the most painful event of his life. He was waiting for the ship bringing his wife Anna and their four daughters. The sheep sank not too far from shore. Only his wife survived and sent him a text message: ‘Saved alone’. In his grief, the Holy Spirit encouraged him by giving him this song, word for word. This song describes the true Gospel of Christ Crucified, the power of God unto the salvation of souls. Read and meditate on its words…
