Prompt & Praise – Sisters singing “It is Well”

Daily Prompt – Moved to Tears

“Do movies, songs, or other forms of artistic expression easily make you cry? Tell us about a recent tear-jerking experience!”

Yes, singing, especially old hymns in acapella, can move me to tears. My own singing often is interrupted by a flow of emotion as I sing the words that lift up my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The Bible is FILLED with verses that describe singing as a way to praise the Lord.

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! ~ Psalm 95:1

    1. Yes. This is the song written after the composer of the hymn lost his family at sea. I checked Wikipedia and found a fact I didn’t know.

      The Spaffords later had three more children. In 1881, the Spaffords, including baby Bertha and newborn Grace, set sail for Israel. The Spaffords moved to Jerusalem and helped found a group called the American Colony; its mission was to serve the poor. The colony later became the subject of the Nobel prize winning Jerusalem, by Swedish novelist Selma Lagerlöf.[3]
