Over the last several months I’ve been (not so) secretly demo-ing songs for a gospel album I’m hoping to release once I’m finished with school. Part of the beauty in releasing the demos has been the feedback I’ve received. It helps to know what songs people do or don’t like before you go to release an album!

Would you help me with that process by telling me…which version of “It Is Well…” do you prefer? The first version (solo with ukulele) or the second (full band version with the Mister Rogers Neighborhood bell set)? Just vote via the poll below, or feel free to leave feedback in the comments section.

Which version of "It Is Well..." do you prefer?

    Both are awesome but I give the nod to the full band version, hands down! I think that version is a progression in song that mirrors how God leads us through tragedy in our lives like Horatio Spafford endured. When tragedy strikes our first response is to cry out in devastation, as I am sure was the case when he received the news that his four precious daughters had perished. Over time God helps us move to a place of peaceful acceptance of what has happened. That surely must have been Horatio’s position when he was able to pen the words, “It is well with my soul.” Many years after that peaceful acceptance we can look back and celebrate the journey God has taken us on and how He has used the tragedy in his greater plan in our lives and in the lives of others. I think your full band version of this song is a version Horatio might have written himself many years after the original looking back and seeing how God used that tragedy in his life in so many ways he could never imagine!
