It is Hell, It is Hell in My Soul

By Leonard Ravenhill


      It is Hell, It is Hell in My Soul

      No Peace like a river attendeth my way,
      My sorrows like sea-billows roll.
      This heart-breaking lot has just taught me to say,
      It is hell, it is hell in my soul.

      My sin- O the grief of this guilt in my heart -
      My anguish, not part, but the whole,
      All adds up to loss, and I bear it alone;
      It is hell, it is hell in my soul.

      Now Satan can buffet, sore trials can come,
      When life is all out of control;
      My conscience just burns, and dark memories haunt,
      It is hell, it is hell in my soul.

      But, Lord haste the day that will chase off this night,
      And scatter this doom from my soul.
      With tears I repent, so, dear Lord, let me know
      There is hope and relief for my soul.

      With great condemnation I fall at Thy cross,
      To confess, not in part, but the whole
      Of a sin-blighted life, and to cry to be cleansed,
      And to plead, "Take control of my soul."
      Only then can I joy and rejoice as I sing
      Not it's well, it is well with my soul.

      -Leonard Ravenhill
