How Great

In loving memory of Hubby's grandma, Lucille

How Great Thou Art
Lyrics ~ Carl Boberg, 1859 - 1940
English Translation ~ Stuart K. Hine, 1899 - 1989
{lyrics from here}

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow'r throughout the universe displayed;

Refrain:
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
I 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

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.

Refrain

When Christ shall come, with shouts 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
