Day 64: Hymns.

On Sunday, we sang this hymn, and since then I keep humming it. When everyone came in on the refrain, I just got goose bumps. At first I wasn't sure why. Our church isn't very big, so it wasn't that so many were singing and harmonizing together...but it was rather the heart that everyone seemed to be singing from. Truly, it was well! It wasn't 'well' because everything was perfect and happy, no...it was well because we were all offering our hearts to Him, and saying, take it...whatever my lot, it is well. What a comfort, what a blessing...

It Is Well With My Soul
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.

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.

My sin, oh the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to His 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.
