How Great Thou Art

Every once in a while the Christians hit it out of the ballpark. This song is amazing and embodies all the wonder and awesomeness of the wolrd we live in and the mystery in which we are participating. Tammy Wynette’s version is classic country, but I just spent an hour or so listening to a lot of different versions.

Lyrics:How Great Thou Art Hymn
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;

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
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
and hear the brook, and feel he 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 shout 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!

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. Maggie,

    My father was Dr. S.L. Watson from Lakeland. He did deliver Tammy’s first child and treated her for a number of years. He had a stroke (not MS) that kept him from continuing obstetrics as well as overall failing health. He passed away in 2001. I can’t believe that I stumbled on your post!
