It Is Well With My Soul ~ Hymn (River)

Today is the 9th of August and it falls on a Sunday. Posting hymns on Sunday has been something I look forward to. Since the word for today in our August Bible Verse Challenge is river I found a great hymn with the word river in it. I could have picked Frances Havergal’s, Like A River Glorious, which is one of my favorites to sing, but this is the hymn for this day.

I’ll also add a verse at the end of the post.

It Is Well with My Soul

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.

Refrain

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

Refrain

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

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

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!
Blessèd hope, blessèd rest of my soul!

Refrain

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.

Words: Horatio G. Spafford

Psalm 46:4-5 (ESV) 

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God will help her when morning dawns.

Share a verse for the challenge in the comments or on your blog and I’ll post them here. Thank you and God bless your Sunday with peace like a river.

Here’s a verse from my sister Vera:

“Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭98:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

From Patsystitch:

Revelation 22:1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb.

From Maristella:

“Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”John 7:38.NIV.

From Happy One:

Isaiah 43:2 KJV

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee;
and through the RIVERS, they shall not overflow thee:
when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned;
neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
