Susan has been a bit under the weather this week, so I hope that hearing this hymn that she requested will be a comfort to her–It Is Well with My Soul, sung by the Three Tenors: Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, and Jose Carreras. Wow! And I do mean sung!
Requested by Erlene, It Is Well with My Soul, performed in an empty silo–how did they ever think of that?–by Sounds Like Reign. Great acoustics in there, with singers who know how to take full advantage of it: and glorifying God as they sing.
All right, no more nooze today–here’s something better.
I found this hymn featured on Marcia Settles’ “A Mom Looking Up” blog today–It Is Well With My Soul, sung by Anthem Lights. As for our sin, the hymn says, “It is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more.” Amen.
I’m running late today, but I couldn’t let slide a hymn request. This one’s by Joshua: It Is Well with My Soul, by David Doring on the panpipes. (Sorry, no umlaut on my keyboard.)
Horatio Spafford wrote this hymn in 1873–after losing his son, and all his wealth in the Chicago Fire, 1871, and then all four of his daughters in a disaster at sea, two years later. How any soul can bear up under so much tragedy can only be explained by the power and the grace of God.
It Is Well with My Soul, sung by Anthem Lights…
True, I just posted this hymn a few days ago. But Erlene has requested it twice; and when that happens–because it happens with me, too–I get to thinking God has a reason for wanting us to repeat a hymn, or a Bible reading, or whatever else might be knocking at our door. So here it is–It Is Well with My Soul, sung by Guy Penrod, David Phelps, and company.
Businessman Horatio Spafford wrote this hymn after losing most of his wealth, his son in the Chicago Fire, and his four daughters in a shipwreck: It Is Well with My Soul (1876), sung by Acapeldridge (in four-part harmony with himself).
The man who wrote this hymn first lost all his property, then lost his children in a disaster at sea. That he could write a hymn, after all that, testifies to the miraculous power of God.
Linda requested this: It Is Well with My Soul, performed by the Crown College Choir.
Folks, I hope you don’t mind our doing hymns today instead of news–but then the hymns are the news, aren’t they? The real news. The good news.
Our friend “Weavingword” sent us this, a beautiful rendition by Chris Rice of the classic hymn, It Is Well With My Soul.
Horatio Spafford lost his two-year-old son to scarlet fever, then lost all his wealth in the Chicago fire, and then his daughters in a sea disaster… and in 1876 he wrote It Is Well With My Soul. Surely God had a firm grip on his hand, and went with him through the valley of the shadow.
We’re always glad to post hymns requested or suggested by readers; and this one is from Nancy: It Is Well With My Soul, sung in beautiful harmony by the Ruppe Sisters at the rotunda of the American Musical Theater in Lancaster, PA.
