209. It Is Well With My Soul

1 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, tt is well with my soul.

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

2 Though Satan should buffet, tho' trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul. [Chorus]

3 My sin - oh, the bliss of this glorious tho't -
My sin - not in part, but the whole,
Is nailed to His cross and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! [Chorus]

4 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. [Chorus]
