The amazingly talented Guy Penrod and David Phelps sing the classic hymn ‘It Is Well With My Soul’ in such a beautiful way that will surely bless your heart.
The song’s touching lyrics are a vivid reminder to us all to always look to the Lord no matter what trials or hardships we may go through in life.
“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”
The song also reminds us that Jesus died for our sins and assures us that one day all of our troubles and worries will be washed away.
‘It Is Well With My Soul’ was composed by Philip Bliss and written by Horatio Spafford after Horatio went through a heartbreaking and traumatic period.
The first was the death of his 2-year-old son and the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which absolutely ruined him financially. Then he lost all four of his daughters in a ship accident from which only his wife survived.
Horatio wrote the song as a testament of how God is with us through the good and the bad times.
“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”
“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”
Listen to the powerful lyrics as Guy Penrod and David Phelps sing this legendary gospel hymn. It is such an inspirational and encouraging song to let us know that even when times may seem dark, our Lord will always come through for us.
