How Great Thou Art

The Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square present folk hymn “How Great Thou Art” with lyrics by Stuart K. Hine and arranged by Nathan Hofheins.

Lyrics:

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder

Consider all the works thy hands have made,

I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,

Thy pow’r thru-out the universe displayed;

When thru 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.

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!

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 shout of acclamation,

And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!

Then shall I 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!
