It Is Well With My Soul

Lyrics By: Horatio G. Spafford, 1873

Tune By: Philip P. Bliss, 1876 (VILLE DU HAVRE)




When peace like a river attendeth my way

When sorrows like sea billows roll

Whatever my lot, thou has taught me to say

It is well, it is well with my soul.



Though Satan should buffet, tho 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 tho’t

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 resound and the Lord shall descend

Even so, 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


Bliss and Spafford
