How Great Thou Art

How Great Thou Art

 1.  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:

 

               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!

 

          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:

 

          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:

 

          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 there proclaim, my God how great Thou art!
