#37: How Great Thou Art!

Standard

 (Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder

Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy pow’r thru-out the universe displayed!

REFRAIN

Then sings my soul, my Savior 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!

2

When thru the woods and forest glades I wander

And 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,

REFRAIN

3

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,

Sent Him to die, I scare can take it in –

That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,

He bled and died to take away my sin!

REFRAIN

4

When Christ shall come with shout 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!

REFRAIN
