It is Well

It is well… with my soul.

You may know the song, but do you know the story behind it?

It is well worth your time to listen to this wonderful explanation

and to hear the gorgeous Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

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 has regarded my helpless estate
And hath shed His own blood for my soul

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 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!

It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

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

      • Thanks, De. I just need to plug my phone in out in the dining room for the night. That way if it beeps, I won’t hear it! <3

    Thank you for sharing that beautiful story narrated by one of my favorite actors, Hugh Bonneville (Lord Grantham). It was very moving and an perfect reminder to us all to stay centered,no matter how many times or ways despair and circumstance tries to overtake us.

    • Yes, {{{Laina}}}, you got the intended reminder. It’s an especially pertinent message for this pandemic world right now, don’t you think?
