It Is Well with My Soul
Words and Music by Philip P. Bliss

Psalm 146:1
"Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul."

divider

          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.

            Chorus
            It is well (It is well) with my soul (with my soul)
            It is well, it is well with my soul.

          Though Satan should buffet, tho' trials should come,
          Let this blest assurance control,
          That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
          And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

            Chorus
            It is well (It is well) with my soul (with my soul)
            It is well, it is well with my soul.

          My sin - oh the bliss of this glorious tho't,
          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!

            Chorus
            It is well (It is well) with my soul (with my soul)
            It is well, it is well with my soul.

          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.

            Chorus
            It is well (It is well) with my soul (with my soul)
            It is well, it is well with my soul.
