Sonja Poorman has captured the essence of the beloved nineteenth-century hymn in her arrangement of 'When Peace, Like a River.' The flowing piano accompaniment conjures up peaceful rolling waves, and the glorious rising harmonies encapsulate our strengthening faith in Jesus Christ despite the buffets of this life. It all resolves in quiet acceptance that 'It is well with my soul.'.
