The story behind the hymn

At our recent Musician's Evening, we watched this story behind the hymn, 'It is well with my soul.'

We will all be thrown about by the storms of life and at those times we must lift our eyes to Jesus. When we feel that everything is lost, we can find a controlling deeper principle, that Jesus has not forgotten us, but remembered us. And that he wants us so much he has shed every drop of his blood to show that he loves us passionately.
