Representative Text

1 Is it well with your soul today, brother,
Is it well with you, today?
Are your sins all forgiven, of God in heav'n,
Is it well with your soul today?

Chorus:
There's a fountain that's set for you, brother,
A fountain of blood for you,
You may wash and be clean from every stain,
Is it well with your soul today?

2 Have you pray'd to the Lord, today, brother,
The Lord, the Lord, today?
Have you lifted your eyes toward yonder skies,
Is it well with your soul today? [Chorus]

3 Have you conquer'd a foe today, brother,
A foe, a foe, today?
Have you suffered one loss for Jesus, cross,
Is it well with your soul today? [Chorus]

4 Can you look up with faith today, brother,
With faith, with faith, today?
Is the horizon clear 'twixt heaven and here,
Is it well with your soul today? [Chorus]

5 Do you cherish a hope today, brother,
A hope, a hope, today?
That the angels will come, and bear you home,
Is it well with your soul today? [Chorus]
