Set against the backdrop of ancient buildings in Jerusalem, a choir of familiar faces deliver a powerful arrangement of this timeless hymn. Bill Gaither and Friends lend their voices in chorus for “It Is Well With My Soul”, with Guy Penrod and David Phelps as featured soloists.
The haunting words of this well-beloved hymn were penned by Horatio Spafford in the late 18th century. While passing the site in the Atlantic Ocean where a passenger ship sank, carrying his four children, Spafford was said to have written the words to this hymn. Even in the face of deepest grief, Spafford’s lyrics are a reminder that trust is not dependent upon circumstances.
“Whatever my lot,
Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.”

This video, It Is Well With My Soul Guy Penrod and David Phelps Live, is a poignant reminder that faith is not determined by outward situations, but by the inward commitment to trust God regardless of circumstances.
