“It Is Well”—Then Sings My Soul Saturday

Then Sings My Soul SaturdayThis isn’t your grandma’s hymn.

The thoughts are the same. The lyrics are the same.
But Kutless sings it a little, well, differently.

So they caught my attention anew with it just when I needed it.

When I think my biggest problem is my circumstance or my overpacked schedule or my aching back, I need to remind myself—NO!

My biggest problem is my sin.

And that problem has been taken care of by Jesus’s blood.

So I can say and sing with confidence, like my grandma did (but slightly different), it is well with my soul.

You, too?

It Is Well
Kutless
LYRICS

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

My sin, oh 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

And Lord haste the day when my 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 with my soul
It is well with my soul

I'm so glad you posted this more contemporary version of this song. I love the lyrics as they have such meaning to me. I enjoyed this version too.

Blessings and love,

One of my favorite hymns. I usually don't care for jazzed up versions of songs like this, but this one was really good.

When I first heard this I really wasn't sure if I would like it, but was going to stay open-minded. Don't get me wrong, I love Kutless, but this is one of my favorite hymns because I can remember hearing my dad and "Ms. Yvonne" sing it at church.

I have decided that I love it. If it had been anyone else but Kutless, I don't think it would have made the grade with me, but yep, I love it!

This rocks! It helps that I don't know hymns very well, so I'm not as influenced by the standard variations. I can see this version on my ipod, helping me power through 4 miles on the running trail!

Thanks!
