A multitude of professional background vocalists in Nashville recorded themselves singing It Is Well With My Soul a cappella on their cell phones during the quarantine. And the finished product is simply stunning!
As these professional singers lifted their voices to sing It Is Well With My Soul a cappella, it was a beautiful moment of worship.
And in these uncertain times, it is so important to find those special moments of joy and these words certainly put my heart at ease.
“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
It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul”
Classic Hymn Brings Peace In Uncertain Times
The story behind It Is Well With My Soul makes it especially poignant during the times we face today. The classic hymn was written by Horatio Spafford and composed by Philip Bliss. After Horatio lost all four of his daughters, he wrote down these words as a testament of how God is with us through the good times and the bad.
Like Horatio, our world is currently going through unprecedented times of loss, sadness, and confusion. As the Coronavirus spreads across the globe, it has caused businesses to close and left many people without jobs.
When a group of Nashville studio singers found themselves without work, they did the next best thing by creating their own music. And the result was an incredible rendition of It Is Well With My Soul a cappella filmed on each person's cell phone.
“Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul”
Psalm 103:2 "Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.”
