When peace, like a river, attendant my way
When sorrows, like sea billows, roll
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well--it is well with my soul

It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well--it is well with my soul

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

It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
It is well--it is well with my soul
