Assurance, Atonement, Hope, Peace, Perseverance, Sin, Suffering and Trials, The Cross of Christ, The Future, The Return of Christ



Verse 1
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot you have taught me to say
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

It is well with my soul
It is well, it is well with 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
But Lord, it’s for you, for your 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 5
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

  Sample Introduction

It is a deep comfort that, even in the deep valleys and storms of this life, because of Jesus’ death and promise to us, we can say, ‘It is well, it is well with my soul.’ Whether you’ve been through, will go through, or currently going through dark and weary times, take heart that Jesus knows and feels your pain and has shed his blood for your soul.
