It Is Well

It is well with my soul
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.

Horatio G. Spafford's classic hymn. Spafford wrote the song while on a ship that was near the spot at sea where his four daughters perished.

Hi Patsy,
This is one of my husbands and my favorite songs, and when we heard the story behind it made it even more special. Thank you for sharing.
Blessings,
Sue
