Another classic hymn, the story behind “It is Well with My Soul” is one of triumph through tragedy. It is the testimony of one man’s unwavering faith in God despite the loss of almost everything. It is a reminder for us that no matter the hard we have to navigate, God is faithful and worthy of our praise.
Some songs are classics. They have withstood the test of time and are still around after over a hundred years. Today’s song is one of these timeless hymns. We could not do a worship set centered on God’s faithfulness and not highlight “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” by Thomas Chisholm and William Runyan.
Hymns are classic. They are full of deep theological truth and have stood the test of time. However, depending on what type of church you go to, hymns can sometimes feel old fashioned and not terribly relevant to the current musical style. Nevertheless, the truth they contain is still rich and deep. So I love it when song writers combine solid hymns with modern music. They give the hymns new life with a fresh bridge or chorus or even weaving them together with newer songs.
