Chords

[D♭]When [D♭]peace like a [D♭/A]riv-er

at-[A♭7/E♭]tend-eth my [D♭]way,

When [B♭min]sor-rows like [B♭min/D♭]sea

[A♭/E♭]bil-[E♭]lows [A♭]roll;

[A♭7]What-[D♭]ever my [G♭]lot, Thou hast

[Emin]taught me [E♭7]to [A♭]say,

“It is [D♭/F]well, it is [D♭/A♭]well

[A♭]with my [D♭]soul.”

Refrain: It is [D♭]well (It is [A♭]well)

with my [A♭7]soul, (with my [D♭]soul,)

It is [G♭]well, it is [D♭/A♭]well

[A♭]with [D♭]my [D♭]soul.

Lyrics

1. 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.”

2. Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come, let this blest assurance control: that Christ has regarded my helpless estate, and has shed his own blood for my soul.

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!

4. For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live: If Jordan above me shall roll, No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

5. But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait, The sky, not the grave, is our goal; Oh trump of the angel! Oh voice of the Lord! Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

6. And Lord, haste the day when the 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.

Refrain: It is well with my soul, It is well, it is well with my soul.
