I Claim Peace

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.

  • 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.

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!

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.

It is well
With my soul.
It is well; It is well with my soul!

  1. I LOVE this song! I learned it early in my walk with the Lord, and it has so ministered to me ever since. The author wrote it after losing his wife and daughter, I believe.

    God bless you,
    Cheri

  4. Thank you for sharing this passage. Inspiration comes in many places. Finding strength in calming thoughts or prayers is invaluable. It is crucial for keeping the mind from racing as well as connecting us with each other. Thanks again.

  5. Heard this song once, sung in a huge church, with thousands of people, and they did one verse softly, with no organ or music…. very impactful! This is one of my mom and dad’s favorites!
