And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.
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."
Tho' Satan should buffet, tho' trials should come, let this blest assurance control, that Christ hath regarded my helpless estate, and hath shed His own blood for 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!
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.
It is well with my soul, it is well, it is well with my soul.
Horatio Spafford was a successful lawyer and real estate investor in Chicago. He and his wife Anna had 5 children, 1 boy and 4 girls. In 1871, they lost their 4 yr. old son to scarlet fever. A few months later, the Great Chicago Fire burned up his property holdings and the majority of everything they owned. Two years later, they planned a family trip to Europe, however, he stayed behind to attend a business meeting intending to meet with them a bit later. On Nov. 21, 1873, French ocean liner, Ville du Havre, was crossing the Atlantic from the US to Europe with approx. 300 passengers, among them his wife and children. Four days into the cruise, the Ville du Havre, collided with a Scottish ship, named Loch Earn. Anna took her 4 girls to the deck and prayed that God would spare them, or His will would be done, or to make them willing to endure whatever awaited them. Twelve minutes later, the ship sank taking 226 passengers with it, including the 4 children. A sailor spotted a woman (Anna) floating on a piece of wreckage and pulled her into his boat and 9 days later picked up by a large vessel and landed in Wales. She sent a telegraph to her husband, "Saved alone. What shall I do"? He took the next ship out. With the ship about 4 days out, the captain called Mr. Spafford in and told him that they were over the place where the ship went down. He went back to his cabin and penned the words, "It Is Well With My Soul." After the tragedy, Anna had 3 more children, one of which died at the age of 4, due to pneumonia. In August 1881, they moved to Jerusalem. Mr. Spafford died and is buried in Jerusalem.
