Sunday Blessings

Oh 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 Savior, God, to Thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art

When through the woods
And forest glades I wander
I hear the birds
Sing sweetly in the trees;
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook
And feel the gentle breeze;

Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great thou art
How great thou art
Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art 

— Excerpt of "How Great Thou Art" by Carl Bobert

Rather than worshiping "Mother Earth" today, I'd like to challenge you to turn your eyes to the Creator Himself. He alone knows the number of stars in the skies, and only He can make the mountains tremble at the sound of His Name. This hymn acts as a wonderful reminder of His power in a world where people seem more concerned about preserving the trees, rather than looking to Him who called them into being.

I hope you have a blessed Lord's Day!
"I lift up my eyes to the mountains — where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." — Psalm 121:1-2

  1. I LOVE this hymn! I was just playing it yesterday on the violin and was so blessed while playing it again. Yes, "How great Thou art"!

    Thank you for sharing.

    In His love,
