The Reason

Day 5

GOD is the reason
In pain, I smile.
In confusion, I understand
In fear, I push forward
In betrayal, I trust.

I need not worry, be anxious, troubled or disturbed
Even though I know not what the future hold
I know my life is safely secured in the hollow of his hands
He’s got my back through it all
And It is well, it is well with my soul.


1. When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows, like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to know,
“It is well, it is well with my soul. ”

It is well,…. With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul.

2. Tho’ Satan should buffet, if trials should come,
Let this best assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate
And hath she’d his own blood for my soul

3. My sin – oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin – not in part, but in whole,
Is nailed to the cross and I bear it no more
Praise the lord, Praise the lord, o my soul.

4. For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live!
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life
Thou wilt whisper thy peace to my soul.

5. But lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait
The sky, not the grave, is our goal:
Oh Trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope! Blessed rest of my soul.
