It is Well with my Soul

In church this morning, we sung It is Well with my Soul.

While containing great lyrics in itself, I have found it to be even more powerful since learning how Horatio Spafford came to write these words.

This wasn’t a case of someone living what we’d consider the good life, musing about the goodness of God. This was a written by a man who experienced pain and loss that many of us cannot understand who, while in the midst of unimaginable grief, wrote the words:

When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well with my soul.
