If you are interested in the depth of feeling behind the original hymn, look up Horatio Spafford.  He lost his business and his four daughters just before penning the classic song.   His wife sent him a telegram after the shipwreck that took his daughters with the message “Saved alone”.  Such heartache it must have been!

But he learned just how great Jesus is through a trial.  When all else is loss, as long as we have the amazing gift of Jesus, it is well.
