Hymns are poetry set to music. It is said that poets “suffer for their art” but few know the level of tragedy that was experienced by Horatio Spafford the hymnist who gave us “It is well with my soul”. The events that gave rise to the hymn and Spafford’s response to them exemplifies the comfort and assurance that comes via faith in Christ. Hear the story (and the hymn) for yourself. Story narrated by Noel Greig.
Listen again to the 8am to 9am session of Songs of Hope from last Sunday, 2012 11 11. Remembrance day is remembered with the song “Avenue of Trees” from Aussie Steve Messer and his band. The song includes the phrase “greater love hath no man”. Includes 5 minute segment on Albert Schweitzer and Albert Schweitzer himself playing a Bach fugue for 5 minutes.
