Sat 10.23 It Is Well

Sat 10.23 It Is Well
Isaiah 48:18 If only you had paid attention to MY commands, your peace would have been like a river, your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

I can't even say much about this verse because it speaks, powerfully and simply, a truth we have no trouble understanding and too much trouble obeying, living out. Here's how the modern psalmist described that peace in this well-loved hymn:
I love especially the 3 verses below.

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has 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

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.

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.

Follow this link to David Phelps amazing rendition of the last verse and see if you don't get caught up when he sings about the trump resounding when Jesus returns!

Here's my attempt.
