How Great Thou Art

Greenbrier County, WV

This morning I stand in awe at the beauty that surrounds me everyday.   Driving down these country roads, I am amazed at the presence of God and how He reveals Himself to us in as something as simple as lifting fog over these breathtaking mountains.

I was reminded of my Grandmother’s favorite hymn How Great Thou Art as I made my way down the colorful crooked roads.   Singing and praising God on such a beautiful morning and thanking Him for everything He has done for me.   Blessed….Well, that is an understatement!

How Great Thou Art

O Lord my God, when I’m 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 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.

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.

When Christ shall come with shouts of acclimation 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!!
