How Great Thou Art

Date recorded: February 09, 2015

Words by: Stuart K. Hine

Music by: Swedish Folk Melody

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 power throughout the universe displayed.


When through 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 see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.


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 to take away my sin.


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 then 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!

Sirs – Please accept my sincere gratitude for streaming these beautiful hymns for others to listen and sing along with. I am one of several men who regularly lead the song service at the Church of Christ congregation where I attend and hold the office of Deacon. today I was able to practice my entire song service in a more effective manner thanks to this website. What better way to practice leading than by “leading” the congregation singing so beautifully on this website. In Christian Love, Paul D. Dean Arlington, TX.
