It is well

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!"
  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 hath regarded my helpless estate,
  And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
My sin—oh, the bliss of this glorious thought—
  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!
For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live;
  If dark hours about me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
  Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

Just as sweet today as 67 years ago when He came into my heart.

Please He loves you, Talk to Him Now!

One of my favorite hymns to sing. I have sang it at many funerals and was able to sing it at my mother's funeral. I will soon sing it again at my father-in-laws funeral. As I attend church and am introduced to the new music the minute an "old" hymn is played, I again realize the power in them and see how the Holy Spirit moves throughout the congregation. What a blessing music is to bring us into His throne room.

Thank you Cicilia for sharing. I had His peace when I saw this music two days ago when I needed Him for help to be kind to my mom when my mom was in a squeeze because of me. Also, I just sent your text to my friend who asked this afternoon for prayer for difficult situation. And sent her a link to this music.
