It Is Well...

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.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul!

It is well ... with my soul!
It is well, it is well, with my soul.  

This hymn was pinned in 1873 by Horatio G. Spafford after he suffered the loss of his four daughters in a boating accident. 
Today, as I remember the life of my father, I join Spafford in saying, “It is well with my soul.”  

I pray all is well with your soul.
