You know,

Sometimes you feel like singing, 'It is NOT well with my soul',

Yet your mind softly plays "Count your blessings" behind the scenes.

But then you ask yourself, what have I to count? "Does Jesus care?" Does He see?

And then you remember to 'stand on the promises of Christ your King and Build your hope on nothing less than Jesus'

Like a flash, your heart burns with joy and you proclaim, "O yes! He cares, I know He cares" ; Nodding your head to affirm what your heart is singing,

 You decide to cast your cares off you

 And 'Take Him at His word, Hide His word in your heart that you might not sin against Him.

Before long, you enter into "Sweet Hour of Prayer" and once you open your eyes,

The courage your heart gets causes your lips to yell in reverence, "Hallelujah! Thine the glory! Hallelujah! Amen!

At last, your heart begins to hum, "it is well with my soul", "God is so good",

Then you marvel and mutter, "What a friend We have in Jesus?"

In some magical way, you remember to sing the exhortation,

"All your anxiety, all your care,
Bring to the mercy seat, leave it there,
Never a burden He cannot bear,
Never a friend like Jesus! "

And you close with the prayer,

"Give me a faithful heart,

Likeness to thee,

That each departing day,

Henceforth may see,

Some work of love begun,

Some deed of kindness done,

Some song to raise or prayer,

Something for thee"
