It is Well

When Peace like a river, attendeth my way,


When sorrows like sea billows roll;


Whatever my lot, though hast taught me to say,



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


Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,




Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for 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.



And Lord, haste the day when my 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.
