“How Great Thou Art” – A church timepiece. Baptist, Wesleyan, Methodist, Nazarene, Church of Christ, Pentecost, Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian, the list goes on, and on, and on. It’s funny how so many millions of people of mutual faiths and a belief in the one true God can not join together and focus on God together as one. A personal opinion maybe but also a deserved question to ponder. America as well as many countries in the world have had the hand of God touch and bless them. Because of the founding Judea Christian values of our country and its fathers before us the United States for many years saw these blessings.

Listening to Lauren Daigle sing this the thought was.. this is a nice song that all people of all Christian faith can equally enjoy. “How Great Thou Art” is a song that joins us all together and for one moment.. we can focus on how great He is, and not how great we are. After all – without Him – we are nothing.

Oh 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 power throughout the universe displayed
When Christ shall come
With a shout of acclamation
To 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 savior God to thee
How great thou art
How great thou art

Then sings my soul my savior God to thee
How great thou art,
how great thou art

How Great Thou Art” is a Christian hymn based on a Swedish traditional melody and a poem written by Carl Gustav Boberg (1859–1940) in Sweden in 1885. It was translated into German and then into Russian and became a hymn. It was translated into English from the Russian by English missionary Stuart K. Hine, who also added two original verses of his own. The composition was set to a Russian melody. It was popularised by George Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows during the Billy Graham crusades. It was voted the United Kingdom’s favourite hymn by BBC’s Songs of Praise. “How Great Thou Art” was ranked second (after “Amazing Grace”) on a list of the favourite hymns of all time in a survey by Today’s Christian magazine in 2001. Notably, all English versions (a Johnny Cash live performance excluded) are in a slow, partly almost reciting manner, totally different from the uptempo style of the Swedish original.
