When peace like a river attendeth my way

It is well, it is well with my soul

Let this blest assurance control

My sin - O, the bliss of this glorious thought

My sin - not in part but the whole
    C              F          D          G 
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul

And, Lord haste the day when the faith shall be sight
         Am               D         G
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll
     C            F              D          G 
The trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend
     C           F     G      C
Even so - it is well with my soul
