Grandpa.

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It it is well, it is well, with my soul.
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life,
Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
But, Lord, ’tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!
It is well, with my soul,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.
And Lord haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.

    This is more important than ever in a world where there are
    dozens of different audio formats. Hardware mechanisms used
    in the manufacturing of a Wi – Fi internet radio system is less complicated and the point of ergonomics is
    kept in mind by the manufactures. Perfect for long trips and for up
    to date information on road conditions ahead.

    Buenas!! estuve investigando alrededor de unas 4 horas en las webs esta tarde y no he visto nada tan genial como tu
    Redaccion. Me ha encantado mucho la forma que gastas al escribir creo que es lo que me ha llegado.
    En mi opinion, si todos los propietarios de webs usaran esta calidad en los contenidos, Internet seria mucho mas practico.
    Espero que brindes mas por estos lares y siga analizando
    comentarios tan increibles como este.
