Choir Sings Chilling Version Of ‘It Is Well With My Soul’ In Church

Several musically gifted singers performed a beautiful rendition of the classic hymn “It is Well with My Soul.”

Hymns are beloved pieces of music, and rightfully so. Songs like “Amazing Grace,” “Great is Thy Faithfulness” and “How Great Thou Art” are powerfully and expertly written. Their lyrics compact so much meaning in line after line, perfectly articulating the power and magnitude of God’s love, mercy and grace.

“It is Well with My Soul” is another hymn that is a favorite of many. In a clip posted on YouTube, The Academy Singers choir from Brentwood Academy dazzle with their elegant performance of the cherished hymn.

The clip opens with a shot of the inside of a little, sparsely decorated chapel from the back. The only noticeable thing on the church’s walls is a small cross that hangs dead center on the wall behind the pulpit. 

Viewers see several people sitting in the church’s pews. There is also a low hum as the clip opens. Seconds later, the camera switches angles, now giving a look from the front of the church and at the choir members.

One young woman on the left side of the screen stands up, sings a line or two, and is then quickly followed by several others who do the same thing. From that point forward, the many choir members stand to their feet and sing out the lyrics about the well-being of their souls despite what they may encounter.

“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”

What a powerful testimony to say that no matter what may happen in this life, everything will be fine, all will be OK, especially in regard to my soul. 

Brentwood Academy describes itself as a “co-educational, independent, college preparatory school dedicated to nurturing and challenging each whole person – body, mind, and spirit – to the glory of God,” according to their YouTube channel.

Matthew 16:26 “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
