Soul Check – November 16, 2018

It-Is-Well-With-My-SoulI don’t know if you read this blog in your office or on your phone; but I do know that it’s a fair bet you too are bombarded by both the busyness and the “bad-newsyness” of life.  Take a minute, right now, and worship God with Horatio Spafford, silently if you must, at full volume if you can!  It might not change your day; but it will draw your soul closer to your God!  Bless you, Pastor Scott

  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, it is well with my soul.

    • Refrain:
      It is well with my soul,
      It is well, it is well with my soul.
  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.

    • Refrain:
      It is well with my soul,
      It is well, it is well with my soul.
  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!

    • Refrain:
      It is well with my soul,
      It is well, it is well with my soul.
  4. 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.

    • Refrain:
      It is well with my soul,
      It is well, it is well with my soul.
  5. 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!

    • Refrain:
      It is well with my soul,
      It is well, it is well with my soul.
  6. 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.

Horatio G. Spafford, 1873
