How Great Thou Art ~ Lois Cunningham (Live)

If you’ve followed my blog for very long… you probably know that I don’t post on Wednesdays.  This week, however, I decided to make an exception.  I thought about just re-scheduling Thursday’s post, but I really like that one so I decided to leave it as is. 😉

Anyway, I saw this video Tuesday night and really wanted to share it with y’all!  This song is truly beautiful, especially if you know the words– so I have included the lyrics below the video for those interested.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! 🙂

So, without further ado… Josh Turner’s 98-year-old grandma-in-law’s live performance of How Great Thou Art:


How Great Thou Art

 

Verse 1
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.

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!

Verse 2
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.

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!

Verse 3
And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
That on a Cross, my burdens gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

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!

Verse 4
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!
