It Is Well - Card

It is Well with My Soul is a beloved Christian hymn from the late 1800's with text by Horatio G. Spafford and music by Phillip Paul Bliss. The words for this hymn were written after a series of traumatic events in Spafford's life, including the death of his son at the age of 2, the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, which  ruined him financially (he had been a successful lawyer and had invested significantly in property in the area of Chicago that was extensively damaged by the great fire), and the loss of all four of his daughters in a tragic accident at sea.

This arrangement for men's voices attempts to capture the feeling of internal peace that Spafford came to following these tragedies in his life, as well as his firm faith and enduring personal gratitude for the Savior.

This arrangement of It is Well with My Soul was added to the BYU Men's Chorus Album, Set Apart on December 1, 2017. If you are interested in the more advanced version as performed by the BYU Men's Chorus, click here.


Three other hymns on the Set Apart album were also arranged by Lane Johnson: Brightly Beams Our Father's Mercy, Onward, Christian Soldiers, and Sweet is the Peace the Gospel Brings. Click the links for more information about these hymn arrangements.

Published by Lane Johnson Music



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 has regarded my helpless estate,

And hath shed His own blood for 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, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!

My sin, not in part but the whole,

Is laid on the cross, and I bear it no more,

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

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.
