Lyrics to “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 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 hath 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!

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.

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!

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

  1. What a beautiful way to receive a Blessing! Sincere thanks to all the persons involved to make this possible for all of us. May God keep hearing your soul reaching out to HIM in prayer saying: “IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL”. This is a lesson and Blessing for a lifetime inspired from above.

  2. I have sung this Hymn many times. It is a favourite of mine yet until now I never knew the story behind it. It is indeed a testament to the certainty of Gods love and that good can come out of tragedy. Thank you a million times for posting this. God Bless all who listen to it. Alan, a Salvationist.

  3. January 15, 2022. I came across this video looking for another song. I grew up surrounded by gospel style Christian singing. I must say that I truly loved watching and listening to this performance. I never knew the origin of the song. Through out my trials and tribulations I always say, "It is well with my soul." Now this inspiration will have a deeper meaning for me. Peace and blessings to all.

  4. I did not know this story, but did you notice every actor did their part so beautifully, even the little ones, and I saw the tears running down her cheeks at the last, of the lady who played Anna, it had to be a hard heart who did not cry and examine their own soul. Would I have coped like the Spaffords, I hope God might have given me the wisdom to go on. For every life has purpose.

  5. I am touched with the story and the way it was delivered. The narrative (and narrator) were amazing , the choir sang it very beautiful. Hope many people blessed with this story and song…. It is Well with My Soul.
