How Great Thou Art

How Great Thou Art Carl Boberg, 1885 (English Translation- Stuart K. Hine, 1949)

Stanza 1:

O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder

Consider all… The world 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!

Stanza 2:

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

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!

Stanza 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.

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!

Stanza 4:

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!”
