How Great Thou Art Lyrics

Verse 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 power throughout the universe displayed.

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

Verse 2:
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 hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.


Verse 3:
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.


Verse 4:
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then shall I bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!"

I have a problem with my foot and is in a great deal of pain,I went into the kitchen for something,and amidst my groaning with pain this hymn popped into my head and I started singing a big smile came over my face and tears streamed down,when I realized God's power,I took my mind off the pain and focused on Him.Truly "How great Thou art"

My mother was a classically trained jazz pianist and educator; musical director for her church. One of her favorite hymns was this song; at my age at that time I didn't much care for the song. my grandson and I were walking to his summer camp about 8:00 am. I wanted to pray and the song popped into my head; because now I realize that the song is a true prayer of God's omnipotent power. Now I am beginning to understand; I am 66 years old.

All someone has to do is listen to the words of this song and know that there should be no doubt of God. This song was my nephew's favorite and when he passed away at 56 the song was sung by his nephews. I love the last verse .

I have always loved this song and when I saw Josh Turner's Grandmother-in-law play it on the piano and she is 98 years old, just watching that video reminded me of my mother and how she played the piano. If she was still a live, she would be 99 in October. The second line of the 4th verse is the part that I like. Truly want this song played and sung at my funeral. Also, want Amazing Grace played and sung too.

I heard this song on my radio and I looked up the lyrics on this site. I starting singing the song and the tears started flowing. God is Great, what have I to fear? I will not fear. "I can do all things through Christ Who strengthen me."
Philippians 4:13

It works magic on me. I hear this track played in my heart each and every day.Especially when I'm in difficult times. It's some kind of medicine to my soul and number one stress realizer. Glory be to God.
