Then Sings My Soul


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






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

And when I think of 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

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

When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And lead me home, what joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow with 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

Nature rejoices in God's greatness.  Surrounded by this great reminder, my heart does sing "how great Thou art".  This day I will cut and paste in my memory book to revisit when the day is dark and my heart no longer feels like singing.  And my spirit will rejoice once again.

Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments;

Deuteronomy 7:9
