How Great Thou Art ...

[Words & music by Carl G. Boberg and R.J. Hughes]
[Pictures borrowed from the internet]



To hear the music, click on the "Play" arrow and wait until Elvis begins to sing. Then scroll down slowly to follow the music.








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 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!"


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!

Janie,

This was such a beautiful post. One of my favorite hymns.

I love the bottom picture of Christ is which is hanging at the top of our stairs in our home.:)

I haven't heard Elvis sing all of these songs and it is wonderful to hear his soothing voice.

Thanks for going to so much trouble to compile the hymns and pictures.

Enjoy a wonderful Sabbath.
Beth

Janie, this is just breathtaking! Thank you so much!

Are you getting snow yet? Folks in east Mississippi and Alabama have. Didn't know if he had gotten to you yet.

Sending love your way for a beautiful Sunday...
