It Is Well with My Soul and Nine Other Hymns for Solo Piano

Without a doubt, “It Is Well with My Soul” is one of the most famous hymns in the English language, due to its stirring words, its heartwrenching melody, and the famous story behind it—wait, you’ve never heard the tale of how it was written?
Well, let’s fix that! Horatio Spafford was a famous lawyer and hymnwriter in the United States in the nineteenth century. In the early 1870s, he had three tragedies strike him, all around the same time. First, his two-year-old son died of scarlet fever. Second, he invested in several buildings in Chicago—and, as you might know, the early 1870s saw the Great Chicago Fire. Yes, it got the buildings. Far worse was what happened two years later, when Spafford’s wife and four daughters were sailing across the Atlantic. Their ship wrecked, and though Spafford’s wife survived, none of his daughters made it. It was on his return to that fateful spot that Spafford had the idea for those famous words... “When Peace like a River…” In fact, that very line is likely a reference to Isaiah 48:17-18. “Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea.”
Well, Spafford was a believer, yet he had these three tragedies overtake him—and still, he was able to write these words? What was the secret? It can be found in Philippians 4:11: “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.” The Christian can be content, for he has the Maker of the Universe, the all-powerful God Who loves us, on His side…and though we might face trials in this world, we can take comfort in knowing that there is more to life than whatever circumstances befall us. The same God that let Satan bring all those trials on Job restored twice as much as Job had possessed before, but this is but a dim picture of the blessings he will bestow on us when we all get to Heaven!
This volume also contains other such classics as “Have Thine Own Way, Lord,” “No, Never Alone,” and “I Know Whom I Have Believed.” In addition, there are several hymns which have not become as well-known, but all of which have great tunes and great words. Most of these were not inspired by tragedies like the ones Spafford went through—and yet, were it not for those tragedies, would It Is Well with My Soul be the classic it is today?
