It Is Well with My Soul

Horatio G. Spafford, 1828-1888
[Key: Ab]

Verse 1
When peace, like a river,
Attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot,
Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, with my soul.
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Verse 2
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, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Verse 3
My sin, oh, the bliss
Of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross,
And I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

Verse 4
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, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.


Maybe you have just sung this song and struggle to say, “It is well with my soul…” hear this video, “Having Assurance of Salvation When I Don’t Feel As Godly“.

Wondrous King all Glorious

Joachim Neander, 1680
[Key: E]

Verse 1
Wondrous King, all glorious, Sovereign Lord victorious,
O, receive our praise with favor!
From Thee welled God’s kindness tho’ we in our blindness
Strayed from Thee, our blessed Savior.
Strengthen thou, help us now;
Let our tongues be singing, Thee our praises bringing.

Verse 2
Heavens, spread the story of our Maker’s glory,
All the pomp of earth obscuring.
Sun, thy rays be sending, thy bright beams expending,
Light to all the earth assuring.
Moon and star, praise afar
Him who glorious made you; The vast heavens aid you.

Verse 3
O my soul, rejoicing, sing, thy praises voicing,
Sing, with hymns of faith adore Him!
All who here have being, shout, your voices freeing,
Bow down in the dust before Him.
He is God, Sabaoth;
Praise alone the Savior, here and there for ever.

Verse 4
Hallelujahs render to the Lord most tender,
Ye who know and love the Savior.
Hallelujahs sing ye, Ye redeemed, O, bring ye
Hearts that yield Him glad behavior.
Blest are ye, endlessly;
Sinless there forever, ye shall laud Him ever.

To God Be the Glory

Fanny J. Crosby, 1875
[Key: D]

Verse 1
To God be the glory, great things He hath done!
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.

Chorus
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

Verse 2
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.

Chorus
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

Verse 3
Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.

Chorus
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.

Wonder of Wonders

Mark Webb
[Key: A]

Verse 1

Oh the wonder of wonders that God should love me
A sinner so guilty, so vile and unclean
To love the unlovely, how can it be done?
‘Tis only in Jesus, in His Blessed Son.

Verse 2

Long before I ever knew Him, my Lord first knew me.
Before I ever sought Him, my Lord first sought me.
When I was in darkness, His sworn enemy
He purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree.

Chorus

His love is a mountain that I cannot scale,
As wide as an ocean that I cannot sail!
I’ll never lay hold of, my mind fully see
This love that in mercy first laid hold of me.

Verse 3

Not that I first did choose Him, for that could not be
Still this heart would refuse Him had He left it to me
I’d still fight the battle that no man can win
I’d still bar the heart’s door that letteth Him in.

Chorus

His love is a mountain that I cannot scale,
As wide as an ocean that I cannot sail!
I’ll never lay hold of, my mind fully see
This love that in mercy first laid hold of me.

His love is a mountain that I cannot scale,
As wide as an ocean that I cannot sail!
I’ll never lay hold of, my mind fully see
This love that in mercy first laid hold of me.

When It’s All Been Said and Done

Don Moen
[Key: C]

Verse 1
When it’s all been said and done,
There is just one thing that matters:
Did I do my best to live for Truth?
Did I live my life for You?

Verse 2
When it’s all been said and done
All my treasures will mean nothing.
Only what I’ve done
For Love’s rewards
Will stand the test of time.

Verse 3
Lord, Your mercy is so great
That You look beyond our weakness,
And find purest gold in miry clay,
Making sinners into saints.

Verse 4
I will always sing Your praise
Here on earth and ever after,
For You’ve shown me Heaven’s my true Home,
When it’s all been said and done.
You’re my life when life is gone.

Verse 5
When it’s all been said and done,
There is just one thing that matters:
Did I do my best to live for Truth?
Did I live my life for You?
Did I live my life for You?

What Wondrous Love is This?

American Folk Hymn, 1835
[Key: Cm]

Verse 1
What wondrous love is this,
O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this that caused the Lord of bliss
To bear the dreadful curse
For my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

Verse 2
When I was sinking down,
Sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down, sinking down,
When I was sinking down beneath God’s righteous frown,
Christ laid aside His crown
For my soul, for my soul,
Christ laid aside His crown for my soul.

Verse 3
To God and to the Lamb,
I will sing, I will sing;
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb Who is the great “I Am”;
While millions join the theme,
I will sing, I will sing;
While millions join the theme, I will sing.

Verse 4
And when from death I’m free,
I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on;
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing on.
And when from death I’m free, I’ll sing and joyful be;
And through eternity,
I’ll sing on, I’ll sing on;
And through eternity, I’ll sing on.

“What has the Lord done for us,
that we will conquer the grave?”

We went our own way
We were far off
We talked our own praise.
We were like sheep
Just going astray
But You have come,
Lord what have You done?

From Your very own side
He poured Himself out
Such great sacrifice
To die for sinners
Redeem fallen man
You bore our own sins, Lord,
What have You done?

What have You done?
What have You done, Lord

All! All! All for Christ!
He deserves our all!
All, brethren, all for Christ!
Give to Christ your all!

How blessed is the man
Whose sins are forgiven
Whose sins are covered
With His precious blood
How blessed is the man
With righteousness given
Apart from his works, Lord
What have You done?

You call us saints
You don’t call us sinners
You call us sheep
You don’t call us goats
You call us friends
Not Your enemies
You call us sons, Lord

We’re waiting on You
Our eyes are on You
We cannot say
No – talk, sing, or tell
Words cannot capture
Enough of Your worth
We thank You and say,
Lord, what have You done?

Verse 6
Let’s give Him our strength
Let’s give Him our youth
Never postpone
No, never be fooled
Hold forth the Truth
The Word of our God
This privilege is ours
Oh, what have You done?

Chorus
What have You done?
What have You done?
What have You done, Lord
Hallelujah, what have You done?

All! All! All for Christ!
He deserves our all!

Was It Enough?

Hugh Wilson, 1800
Neil Barham, 2010
[Key: E]

Verse 1
Was it enough, that God should die
To take away my sin?
Enough to close the door of Hell,
And stop my falling in?
Enough, that I be righteous found,
Before His perfect view?
Enough, that Christ’s own deeds be mine?
Despite all I could do?

Chorus
My God, why would You shed Your blood
So pure and undefiled
To make a sinful one like me
Your chosen, precious child?

Verse 2
Enough that all my soul and mind
Transformed within should be?
Enough, my sin should be subdued,
And God should live in me?
No! Not enough! More would He do!
How deep His mercy runs:
That I, a treas’nous wretch, should be
Adopted as His son!

Chorus
My God, why would You shed Your blood
So pure and undefiled
To make a sinful one like me
Your chosen, precious child?

Verse 3
To wear His name, to feel His kiss,
To lie in that embrace,
What grand, mysterious gentleness
Shines in my Father’s face!

Chorus
My God, O how You shed Your blood
So pure and undefiled
To make a sinful one like me
Your chosen, precious child!

Verse 1
Unto Jesus be all glory,

Let our words and voices soar!
Precious Jesus, we are longing,
Just to worship at Your feet.
You are worthy beyond measure,
And Your Name to us is sweet.

Verse 2
Unto Jesus be all glory,
In Your blood the Gospel’s sealed.
You were pierced for our transgressions,
By Your stripes our wounds are healed.
Dearest Jesus, precious Savior,
At the cross You did atone
We were rebels, we were debtors,
Now we stand before Your throne.

Verse 3
Unto Jesus be all glory,
As you live to intercede
Binding up the brokenhearted,
Meeting every single need
Precious Jesus, our Good Shepherd,
Caring always for Your sheep,
You surround us with Your favor,
All Your promises to keep.

Verse 4
Unto Jesus be all glory,
Captain of a mighty host,
Soldiers in the fiercest battles,
Fighting to the uttermost
War is raging, but You are reigning,
By Your wise and sovereign hand.
Keep us holy, keep us faithful,
To the Word of Your command.
