How Great Thou Art

Β How Great Thou Art

Oh 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 power throughout the universe displayed;

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!

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… by Carl Gustav Boberg

    Glad you had your camera. I treasure that hymn.

    • πŸ˜‰ It’s a great one ~

      • I wish I knew how many times I played “How Great Thou Art” during my 30 years as church organist, and organist at the mortuary. I never got tired of it. I know the younger folks like the more contemporary church music, but the words just don’t bless like the old songs. Your photo was beautiful and left me with a peaceful feeling, after a stressful week. Thanks.

      • The song is very peaceful, Delores. I’m sorry you had a stressful week. Head on over to the piano…’s great therapy. β™₯ Here’s to next week πŸ˜‰

  9. There are some hymns that reduce me to tears. This is one of them. Love the accompanying photo.
