Always Sail, Never Drift by Oliver Wendall Homes

“I find the great thing in this world is not so much where
we stand
as in what direction we are moving;
To reach the port of heaven, we must sail
sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it,
but we must sail,
and not drift, nor lie at anchor.”

It Is Well with My Soul by Horatio G. Spafford

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.”

It is well
It is well
with my soul;
with my soul;
it is well, it is well with my soul.

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.

It is well
It is well
with my soul;
with my soul;
it is well, it is well with my soul.

My sin O 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
It is well
with my soul;
with my soul;
it is well, it is well with my soul.

O 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.

It is well
It is well
with my soul;
with my soul;
it is well, it is well with my soul.

This is my very favorite hymn! I have found peace and solace in it countless times, in my walk with God, through this life.

Love one another!~Yvonne

    I love “It Is Well With My Soul.” I find so much comfort in that hymn when I am struggling through a rough time.

    ‘It Is Well’ is one of my favorite hymns, too. Like you, I’ve found peace in it’s verses. XO
