It Is Well With My Soul

On November 21, 1837 Horatio Spafford’s 4 daughters drowned in the Atlantic when their ship collided with another.  He wrote It Is Well With My Soul soon after.  Here’s a Mars Hill video that remembers the tragic circumstances surrounding this great hymn.

You can see the original manuscript here.

    Kym – I think its a combination of the words and the tune that make it so encouraging. Horatio Spafford sure did have a hard life – helps keep things in perspective.
