Welcome

The Philip P. Bliss Gospel Songwriters Museum is located in Rome, Pennsylvania, in the house where Bliss lived. Bliss is the writer of many favorite gospel hymns such as "Hallelujah, What A Savior," "Let the Lower Lights Be Burning," "Almost Persuaded" and many others. He wrote the music to Horatio Spafford's lyric "It Is Well With My Soul."
