It Is Well With My Soul (remake of "When Peace Like a River")


1. The Word in the water does wash sins away
That Baptismal grace makes me whole
And though I still sin I can faithfully say
Jesus Christ makes it well with my soul.

(chorus) It is well (it is well)
With my soul (with my soul)
It is well, it is well with my soul

2. Christ speaks absolution to sinners Himself
Though from pastors' lips it does roll.
I confess what troubles me, though it be filth
And His word makes it well with my soul. (chorus)

3. His body and blood in the Supper will feed
My spirit and body—the whole
These gifts—means of grace—they provide all I need
For my soul—thank the Lord!—for my soul! (chorus)

4. I pray, dear Lord Jesus, you bring me in love
To that heav'nly banquet, my goal
Where you reign with the Father and Spirit above.
Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! (chorus)

I am passing this on to my pastor with the request we use it in Divine Service. Many in my parish seem to love the hymn, so we may as well use the Lutheran version instead.
