A specially-crafted treatment is needful for one of the most beloved hymns in our repertoire, and this arrangement has just that. The piano opens with a simple broken arpeggiated pattern for the first stanza, skipping the refrain, and continuing to develop its gradual cresecendo into the second and third stanza with simple instrumental parts. Treble clef instruments begin the phrases alone, and bass clef instruments come in gradually as the stanza develops. A satisfying and brilliant key change follows the third refrain (involving piano and all instruments), and voices soar on "And Lord, haste the day..." All instruments decresendo as the refrain closes, and voices and instruments tag the final line after a deceptive cadence: "It is well, it is well with my soul."
