Getty Music today released the official music video for Keith and Kristyn Getty’s new rendition of the timeless hymn, “It Is Well With My Soul.” The song is featured in the forthcoming film, “Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years,” which shares the inspiring, true story of Sabina (Oster) Wurmbrand and her husband Richard, who founded The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM), an interdenominational missions organization that serves persecuted Christians around the world.
The new music video includes footage shot in Northern Ireland of the expansive coast, roaring waves and towering cliffs to complement the original song. Scenes from “Sabina” representing the love and forgiveness Sabina Wurmbrand showed and illustrating the Wurmbrands’ lives are intertwined throughout the video.
“We are honored to support the film ‘Sabina’ and believe the message of forgiveness is important for all to hear, ” said Keith and Kristyn Getty, known for their championing of hymns over the past twenty years. “We pray that viewers are moved by the lyrics of ‘It Is Well With My Soul’ and reflect on the importance of trusting God in all circumstances.”
Set during World War II, “Sabina” takes viewers on a journey through Romania to discover why Sabina Wurmbrand, a Jewish Christian, would risk her life to offer a kind hand to German soldiers—enemies who killed her entire family. The film conveys the realities of religious persecution during that era and the cost of following Christ when faith is forbidden. Richard Wurmbrand was imprisoned and tortured for 14 years in a Communist prison, while Sabina Wurmbrand experienced three years in prison and forced labor then she continued to carry on the missionary work of her husband.
Directed by John Grooters and distributed by Lifeway Films, “Sabina: Tortured for Christ, the Nazi Years” will premiere in theaters nationwide on Nov. 8, 9 and 10, through a special Fathom Event release, following the observance of International Day of Prayer for Persecuted Christians on Nov. 7.

Additionally, the song will be included in the Oct. 4 Getty Family Hymn Sing and the Oct. 17 Global Hymn Sing. As part of these events, millions of people will join in singing the Getty’s beautiful rendition of this classic hymn in an act of global solidarity, helping to bring awareness of “Sabina” and today’s persecuted Christians to national and international audiences.
