Riddle, Jeremy - It Is Well With My Soul Lyrics

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

My sin, o, the joy of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole
Was 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
Yes, it is well, it is well, with my soul
It is well, it is well

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

    Our worship team is doing this song tomorrow.

  8. JT Leon

    When ones life is free from turmoil and heartache it's hard to relate to those whom are in suffering. I now hurt and feel other's pain of this world. Don't give up, we have a promise, it shall all come to pass.

  9. Kulyani David

    truly my sin was nailed to the cross of Jesus Christ

  10. Elijah Ingle

    This song tells me everyone who is special that passed away in your life is in a better place and it is well here to call home for our god

  11. Mick Soiseth

    This has always been one of my favorite hymns. Very inspiring to hear the story behind it and what an inspiring interpretation by Jeremy Riddle. Beautiful.

  12. Angela Cunningham

    This hymn is perfectly fine in it's original form, we do not need homosexual heretical ponces like Jeremy Riddle tampering with it, so that they can make money in royalties, leave well alone Jeremy, in fact why don't you and Bethel disappear from the worship scene altogether, because what you do is performance and not worship totally pathetic

  13. Peter Parker

    "The trump shall resound and the Lord shall decend!"
    This is my favorite line. He is coming and when He does and He takes us from this place, there will be no more fear, or pain, or tears, or death.
    There will only be life. There will only be Him.

  14. Sebagmassingberd

    Ephesians 3:18-19 New Living Translation (NLT)

    18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.

  25. paperpusherone

    I pray that it is well with my soul, and that I glorify the creator. I would hope to be half the man of faith that was Horatio Spafford.

  26. Ayshea Lawrence

  27. menslady125

    However hard times may get, don't give up...there is hope and you are NOT alone!

    "In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart. I have over come the world." - Jesus, John 16:33

    James Buckett

    menslady125 even if im gay will Jesus still love me.will i get to heaven.


    Jesus loves you...but He doesn't love your gay lifestyle. He would however, love to set you free from it.

  28. Sally Soen

    Verse 2 of this amazing song sings like this: Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come, let this blest assurance control, that Christ has regarded my helpless estate and has shed His own blood for my soul. What a Saviour. Praise the Lord.

  29. Rolande Gignac

    When anxiety starts to kick in, I listen to this wonderful worship... Amen, Praise Our Lord Jesus Chirst.

    - hymnus napísal Horatio Spafford v roku 1872
    Horatio Spafford bol úspešným a bohatým právnikom 60tych rokov 17.storočia (1860-1870). Spolu
    so svojou ženou Annou boli dobre známi aj svojím silným priateľstvom so slávnym kazateľom DL
    V roku 1870 ich však zasiahla tragédia. Jediný syn Spaffordovcoov zomrel ako štvorročný na
    šarlach. Rok nato Veľký chicagský požiar zničil každú jednu z ich investícií do nehnuteľností na
    pobreží Michiganského jazera. Vedomý si následkov týchto katastrof na jeho rodinu sa Horátio
    rozhodol ku koncu roka 1873 vziať svoju ženu a 4 dcéry na prázdniny do Anglicka. Jednak aby si
    oddýchli a takisto aby pomohli kazateľovi Dl Modymu s jednou z jeho evanjelizačných kampaní.
    Tesne pred vyplávaním francúzskeho parníka ,, Villede de Havre“ na Atlantický oceán na poslednú
    chvíľu dohodnuté obchodné záležistosti prinútili Horátia sa omeškať.
    Pretože nechcel zničiť rodinnú dovolenku, Spafford presvedčil svoju rodinu aby vyplávali podľa
    plánu a sám mal prísť neskôr za nimi.
    Iba deväť dní nato, Horatio dostal telegram od jeho ženy vo Walese. Stálo tam- Jediná zachránená.
    Druhého novembra 1873 , sa parník ,,Villede de Havre“ zrazil s inou anglickou loďou. Potopil sa
    len za 12 minút a nehoda si vyžiadala životy 226 ľudí. Anna S. odvážne stála na palube s jej
    dcérami Annou, Meggie, Bessie a Tanetou, zúfalo sa jej držiacimi. Jej posledná spomienka bola na
    to, ako jej sila vĺn vytrhla z náručia malú dcérku. Anna samotná bola zázrakom zachránená, keď jej
    bezvládne telo podoprela doska náhodne plávajúca okolo.
    Po vypočutí si týchto hrozných správ sa Horatio Spafford nalodil na najbližšiu loď, aby sa pridal k
    jeho trúchliacej žene. Počas tejto plavby ako išli cez miesto, kde sa utopila loď s jeho rodinou,
    Horatio napísal slová tohto veľkého hymnu. Spaffordova pieseň odhaľuje nadprirodzený pokoj,
    ktorý môže prísť len z jedného zdroja- z kríža Ježiša Krista.

    Beautiful and touching, Thank you for sharing

  35. Banyaditse Phadisa

    i cant stop listening dis song since i knw the story behind.

  36. Rainu Tomar

    so much of pain and suffering . this is not just a song but a testimony and abounding grace of God in his child's life. can we still thank and worship him after going through such a furnace.... yes Christians can
    .. but only by his divine mercy

  37. Deborah Hutcheson

    It is hard to pick a true favorite Christian worship song, but this one truly has to top my list. Always offers me much peace no matter what I'm facing (certainly no where near to what the author of song faced). This song never fails to remind me of who I belong to & with such unbelief gratitude of having been chosen & delivered from the darkness of where my soul once was.

  38. Jess Apolosi

    I have always loved this hymn and now finding out what happened to the family😢 makes me appreciate it more. It is well with my soul❤❤❤

  39. Pat jacobs

    it is well with my soul...because God gives me strength when I am weak ..comforts me in my pain and suffering...he gives me hope ....for a better day...praise the lord...

  40. Fluffy

    well, what a story..to be able to say that after everything!!Thank you for this post.

  41. Dick Perlas

    Shabbath Shalom from Manila, Philippines!

    Indeed it well with my soul. I lost 2 siblings already. They died as a believers of Lord Jesus, Yeshua Ha Mashiach. Both of my parents died in the same year , May and July 2012. They are believers too of Yeshua Ha Mashiach. I was sent to the National Bilibid Prisons in Muntinlupa City, Philippines from 206 until 2010, yet it is well with my soul. Then, the God of Israel intervened. I applied as a janitor in the University of Mutinlupa City in 2011 but was hired as a College Professor in the Colleges of Education and Crimology. There I taught for 6 semester until 2014. God produces miracles. Believe and obey God's commandements. Pls watch on You Tube my prison story, "The Dick Perlas Story". To God, Ha Shem be the Glory.

  42. Charles Kimani

    What a sorroful song but God is with us

  43. Chase Spafford

    f*ck you if you hate this song peace is great

    mary wallace

    Chase, if your family has any connection to Horatio or not, my soul grieves for you seeing that your life is in need of Jesus in a way that give's you peace in Him. Be assured that you will be in my prayer's. My desire is that you will find the peace for your soul.

  44. Lilli A

    God is always so good and faithful. All the praise and glory goes to Him. It is well with my soul . Thank You Jesus !

  45. Joey Figurowski

    This is my life's song... I want to go home. This world is not my home. I long for the day when this faith will be made sight. Every eye will see, every tongue will confess, every knee will bow. 😭🔥❤️😢

    Pat jacobs

    Joey Figurowski amen..this is not our home...he chas prepared us a room in his father's house ..


    Joy of holy cross 🔥

    Álan Lopes

  53. Jacob Raj

    A song og blessing to my own soul

  54. Deborah Hutcheson

    Don't know how that comment of mine below, made it on this page. I love reading the story to what happened to this family, tho heartbreaking it is. However, how many hearts over the years have been uplifted due to his tragic life but his strong faith in our Lord. Don't know if I could have gone thru what he did with such faith. Would like to think so but I thank God for keeping my kids safe as they grew up.

    Robert Bowes

    Hi Deborah, it is hard to imagine, out of great suffering and loss can come a song like this, I was walking and talking with the lord tonight imagining this very thing, as I thought about the story I was reminded of the early believers, who, when they were to be stoned or eaten by lions, or horribly crucified how did they go through it,and I realized that it is and would only be by the supernatural power of His glorious grace. I know that at times like these the Lord's grace abounds, and in the moment of great loss God is most glorified and magnified in us, when we are most satisfied in Him and His grace alone. I could go on and on about this. It is one of the wonderful truths about our relationship with Him. Oh glorious God we give you thanks that you have blessed us with this amazing grace and I pray that you might come back to this page and be blessed.

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

    My sin, o the bliss of this glorious thought
    My sin, not in part but the whole
    Was 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
    Yes, it is well, it is well, with my soul
    It is well, it is well

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

  67. Charles Jones

    As the people of our world increasingly reject the Only Salvation God Has Provided, Jesus the Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the LIFE, and our world descends into darkness, ... "It Is Well, It Is Well, With My Soul," for it is Secure within God's Hand.

  71. Lorraine Bernier

    Juste au début de la vidéo, dimanche le 23 novembre 2014, j'ai vu, en français, avec un accent québécois, une  publicité qui montre des femmes en petite tenue (avec l'arrière train en plein devant la vidéo) est tout à fait en conformité avec les médias télévisés québécois. Il y a au Québec, derrière le pouvoir, des ou un individu qui dénigrent les femmes québécoises de souche; il n'y a plus de doute que ce sont des étrangers pervers et même sorciers qui contrôle maintenant.  IL N'Y A PAS DE DOUTE QU'IL Y A UN "ILLUMINÉ DE SATAN" QUI ME SUIT. Ça ne reflète pas la vraie chrétienté, mais le PAGANISME. C'EST SCANDALEUX ET DE LA PROPAGANDE PORNOGRAPHIQUE POUR DÉNIGRER LE CHRIST.

  72. moses abwao

    whenever i leasten to this song i get peace in my soul,i fill like am in heaven,,i know am passing through many difficulties ,,eg school fees,and so many more,,but this song gives me hope that in Christ it is well wth my soul

  78. Flore Ndendet

    I know this song since I was a kid and it has always touched me on a special way. I didn't even know the author of the song. But as I read his story today, I realize the reason why it touches me every time that I listen it. When a song's writing in a heart, in a pure one, you can't be insensitive. I just give praise to the Lord .

  81. CrzyBear9

    John 14:27
    Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

    That supernatural peace comes from Christ ,and Christ alone.Jesus is the fount of all blessing upon man,in Him are all men made justified and holy before God the Father,,,and NOT the cross. We look to the cross because our Lord was crucified there for the remission of sins and so that we might take part in His resurrection through faith in Him,Jesus the Christ. 

    Salvation is not found in the cross,neither in Mary,nor in good works. Salvation,and life,and peace,and justification,and eternal life is found ONLY in Jesus.

    Jeremiah 29:11
    For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

    Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.

    And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.


    CrzyBear9 wasn't the cross, jesus death in fulfilment of isaiah 53 the outworking of his nature? To give up his life on behalf of his freinds, so that by his wounds we may be healed and by his sacrificial death we may be atoned to God?

    Mick Soiseth

    Amen CrzyBrear. We must remember that this life is very brief, this is not our home. Whatever pain and sorrow we go through in life, in the big picture it doesn't matter. Our home is a place where no sad good-byes will be spoken because time won't matter anymore.

    I love this song and it gives me so much peace!

    The hymn It Is "Well with My Soul" inspired by the death of his son and 4 daughters, as the loss of all his wealth is one of the most inspirational I have ever heard and also inspired by Psalm 103:2 "Praise the Lord, O my soul and forget not all His benefits" I am certain that Horatio Spafford is one of the strongest spirit filled men as well as physically strong men I who has ever lived.

  85. Faded Tiger

    Hymns like this helped me through a lot as a child. I was abused at a young age so growing up I had a lot of pain and anger to deal with. If I had not decided to start going to church at a young age my life would be very different and far worse now. Gods grace is great and more than enough if you look for it. You folks have  a blessed rest of your day today.

  86. Candace Lambert

    My friends sang this at my mom's funeral in 2006. love it

  87. John Lewindon

    A very dear friend went to be with the Lord yesterday. He was a gentle, caring, supportive and gracious and we were friends for over 44 years. This is for his children and all who knew him. Deo Gloria.

  88. FoxyKiller7265 Killer

    The song it is well with my soul is sooo beautiful! !!!!my soul and spirit could hear that all day!!!! I luvvvvv you Messiah! !!

  89. Cody Robbins

    Love this and not trying to ruin the moment, but upon doing research to perform this with the story at my church, his son was born AFTER the shipwreck in 1873 and died at age 4 of scarlet fever on February 11, 1880.

  90. joyce muriritirwa

    it is well with my soul

  91. Mesha Fredericks

    I love this song so much. We played this as the recessional sing for my son's funeral back in October 2014. It was and still is the hardest thing I've ever and could ever imagine going through!!! I prayed day and night for my little boy from the last 3 months of my pregnancy until he passed away at 15 days. I have to remind myself that God gave me my son and God took him to a higher place and that when I find out I was pregnant I made a promise to God that whatever it takes, whatever his will in my life and the life of my son, I would not fight him over and I would not stray from him over it. So i play this when I feel myself straying and missing my son the most

    Christ Is Risen

    @Mesha Fredericks My heart goes out to you... May you be strengthened every single day by the abounding grace of the cross of Jesus. Your son is alive and well!

    Florene Dean

    It is well with my soul

  92. larry cox

    In reading the comments on Youtube in several versions of this wonderful song no one ever mentions how Mrs. Spafford dealt with all the tragic experiences She went through.

    "Therefore we know and are convinced that so long as we dwell in the body, we are absent from Christ Jesus.
    For we walk by Faith,  and not by sight.
    This is why we are confident, and anxious to be absent from the body,
    and to be present with Christ Jesus..." {2COR5}
