How Great Thou Art

The singing in church this morning was especially good. I found myself just listening to the harmonies blending and soaring. When we began to sing, How Great Thou Art, I must admit that I wondered if anyone else remembered learning to sing this hymn from a giant song book. It was at least three feet tall and the words were printed stanza by stanza over top of the illustrated pages. It took two people to hold it and turn the pages. Could be kind of fun to bring it out one Sunday just for old times sake. It does seem to be true that the things you learn as a child not only stay with you but take on the ability to comfort.

Psalm 71:17 O God, You have taught me from my youth, And I still declare Your wondrous deeds.

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy Hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
Thy pow'r throughout the universe displayed;
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!
