Oh Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works
Thy hands have made
I see the stars
I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power 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

When Christ shall come
With shouts of adulation
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

How great Thou art
How great Thou art...

    God is sovereign lord of all creation. He alone is worth of all our awesome respect and loyalty. He is to be feared for his judgment of sin for sin is the thing that does the exact opposite of his great love and provision for all mankind. God is my savior and lord. May he be yours as well so that you can experience his infinite greatness.

    This song represents some of finite man's attempt to praise infinite and infinitely loving and forgiving god of the universe. He is the essence of holiness and righteousness yet he chooses to love us and paid the price to redeem our sinful souls. To god be glory, honor and praise now and forever more.
