“And he said:“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there.
The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21 (NKJV)
**When peace, like a river, attendeth my way – – When everything is going well and right
When sorrows like sea billows roll; – – When life has taken its heaviest toll
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say – –
No matter what is going on in my life You have taught me this one thing
It is well, it is well, with my soul! – – All is alright, With You by my side,
My soul is at peace.

It is well – – Thank You Lord!
With my soul – – With my whole being
It is well, It is well – – I rest in You, I trust in You,
With my soul! – – With my whole heart, soul and mind
With all I am, all I have
My inmost being.

Thank You LORD that no matter what has come into our lives, whether because of something we have done, or someone else has thrown us into a pit, we can rest in You and we can find peace in our inmost being. I praise You LORD that one day the clouds will part, and You will call us home and we will have no more sorrow, no more pain, no more sin. Until then LORD, may we find within us the words to say, BLESSED BE YOUR NAME IT – IS WELL WITH MY SOUL.
