MountainsThe Hymn How Great Thou Art

Words

How Great Thou Art!
North and South American Version:

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 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 I shall bow in humble adoration,
And there proclaim, my God how great Thou art!

* Stuart Hine gave permission for North and South America only to change his original words ‘works’ and ‘mighty’ to ‘worlds’ and ‘rolling’ and ‘Then shall I bow’ to ‘Then I shall bow’.
