July 17, 2021 - How Great Thou Art

O 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 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 see 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 shout of acclamation, And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.Then I shall bow, in humble adoration, And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"
[chorus]
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!

Carl Boberg



A Swedish preached named Carl Boberg got caught in a thunderstorm one day. Loud thunder all around. Bright and scary lightening lighting up the sky. Rain falling down.


This cause Carl to to kneel down "in humble adoration" and pray to God. Because of this experience, he was inspired to write How Great Thou Art.


I wonder, do we kneel in humble adoration when we experience the majesty of God? Many times, we get caught up in thd rush of daily life.
