It Is Well

Good Sunday Morning!  This is the old song running through my head today, so I thought I would share.  When you read all that the writer went through in his life…it makes this song all the more amazing to the heart.  I hope that we can all come to a place in our lives where we can say the same that Horatio Spafford did.  It. Is. Well.

It Is Well With My Soul

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.

It is well, (it is well),
With my soul, (with my soul)
It is well, it is well, with 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.

Horatio Spafford
