Real Stories of Everyday Saints

Recording from Everyday Saints CD

mp3 / wma
(First Verse)
When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, You have 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.

(Last Verse)
And Lord, haste my day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall appear,
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.

When discouragement set in, th song lift my soul to remember the steadfastness of God for the whole wide world. What a song that will set abade the slightest down of Man. The song remind me of that beautiful place call home, where all who are passing through trial, persecution etc will be at the close of day. Like Job, it is well with his soul, like Abraham, it also well with his soul. Therefore, the greatest song of the century.

Golda, well, I almost had the story right. Here is a link for better facts than mine.

Golda, the way I understand it, the man who wrote this song was in real estate in Chicago at the beginning of the 20th century. He and his family were wealthy and friends with a famous preacher. The preacher had gone to England to preach and the family without the Father because he had business to attend to and would come over later, sailed over. But the ship was hit by a torpedoe and sank drowning all four of his daughters. His wife survived and telegramed her husband "It is well with my soul." Later he sailed over to join his wife and at the spot where his daughters had died he had the inspiration for the song "It is well with my Soul."
Beautiful story.
I'll try to find a link to corroberate my memory.

This was sung at my brother's funeral.For a while I couldn't listen to it.I heard a little about the writer(that's how I started listening again) but I don't know the whole story.If anyone has an extract/excerpt,or even a site that I can read about this writer please forward it to me, Thank you

This is a most wonderful expression of thanks to God from a man under the pressures of this world
Verse 3 says
My sin - O 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

There is another part of this hymn writer's history which must be brought up. When a third tragedy hit his family, many of his fellow church members' claimed that it must be God's judgment for some sin. Thus, he left with his family and a handful of friends and lived as a broken man in Israel.

This song had truly been a blessing to me.I had a chance to worship with Pastor Danny Davis at Jordan Grove Baptist and his sermon was about the author of this song.The Pastor clearly explained the reason why the author wrote the song. It was a help to me because I losted my daughter in August,2008.I can relate to what the author was saying.I have let go and let God.It is well with my soul. Each day God gives me a clear understanding of His Will being done.
