Lyrics

How Great Thou Art (1885) Swedish Folk Song

O LORD MY GOD! WHEN I IN AWESOME WONDER
CONSIDER ALL THE WORKS THY HAND HATH MADE.
I SEE THE STARS, I HEAR THE ROLLING THUNDER,
THY POWER THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE DISPLAYED.

REFRAIN:
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 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 HEAR THE BROOK AND FEEL THE GENTLE BREEZE:
(REPEAT REFRAIN.)

AND WHEN I THINK THAT 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:
(REPEAT REFRAIN.)

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 THERE PROCLAIM, MY GOD, HOW GREAT THOU ART!
(REPEAT REFRAIN.)
