My Soul Worships

How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder consider all the works thy Hand hath made, I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder, Thy pow'r throughout The universe displayed;


When through the woods and forest glades I wander I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees; when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze;


Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art!


And when I think that God, His Son not sparing sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in; that on the cross, my burden gladly bearing, he bled and died o take away my sin.


When Christ shall come, with shouts of acclamation, and take me home, what joy shall fill my heart! Then I shall bow in humble adoration and there proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!"


Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee, How great Thou art! How great Thou art!

Love to all,
Robin

Thank you for this beautiful post. I remember when that song first came out and we learned it at our church. We used to sing it so often but not so much any more. I still love it.
Blessings,
Charlotte
