It is well with my soul

Sometimes it's hard, sometimes I cry
Sometimes my heart wants to know why?
But Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light
And though my heart is aching and there's tears in my eyes

Whatever my lot, You have taught me to know
It is well, it is well with my soul

It's not always easy, I'm not always right
Sometimes I do things that are wrong in Your sight
But I have decided I'm going to follow Jesus
And there's no turning back, there's no turning back

You have reached down to me, You have rescued me
And have shed Your blood for my soul
And I live now knowing that the sky and not the grave will be my goal
And just as in life, also in death this truth will comfort and console
That soon I will see Your face and hear Your voice
and know that it is well

But please hold my hand, Lord, and hold on tight
'Cause the road here is narrow
Yes, the road here is narrow

This song is from Brenton's new album, which I received through the post yesterday (You can hear song samples if you click on the link above). I now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Lord is 'on my case' and trying to say something through these words as well as those of the hymn I copied here! He is awesome and He knows me!!
