Oh, my life is filled with white-hot anxiety
Though I think I wear it very well
I still worry 'bout what people might think of me
If they ever saw me past my outer shell
Believe me, I know how to worry
I've chewed my fingernails to the bone

Oh, I've got my share of problems
Still it is well with my soul
Sometimes I wrestle with my conscience
Still it is well with my soul

Lord, I think about all You've done for me
Lord, I think about it all the time
But sometimes a ghost from the past
Starts really haunting me
Sticking awful feelings in my mind
But believe me, I won't let it get to me, no
I ain't walking down that old, dark road

Oh, I've got my share of problems
Still it is well with my soul
Don't always know just how to solve them
Still it is well with my soul
Since I've been given true forgiveness
And it is well with my soul
I'll be about my Father's business
And it is well with my soul

(In my soul)
I can see clearly
(In my soul)
Through the darkness surrounding me
Once you've tasted and seen
Then you'll know what I mean
There ain't nothing gonna keep me down
Come on, people!

Get up
(Get on up)
Get up
(Get on up)
Stay on the scene
(Get on up)
Do you know what I mean
(Get on up)
Ow, get up
(Get on up)
Hey, hey, hey, hey
(Get on up)
Get up
(Get on up)

Oh, I've got my share of problems
Still it is well with my soul
Don't always know just how to solve them
Still it is well with my soul
Sometimes I wrestle with my conscience
Still it is well with my soul
Still I know that I've got true forgiveness
And it is well with my soul

Oh-oh-oh, I've got my share of problems
Still it is well with my soul
But I know, but I know
My Father's gonna help me solve them
And it is well with my soul
Since I've been given true forgiveness
Oh, it is well with my soul
I'm gonna be doing my finest business
And it is well with my soul
Oh, it is well
Oh, it is well with my soul
So well
Everything's gonna alright
Oh, it is well with my soul
