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

Verse 2
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 burdens gladly bearing
He bled and died
To take away my sin

How great Thou art
How great Thou art
How great Thou art
O sings my soul

Verse 3
When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
And lead me home
What joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And then proclaim, my God,
How great Thou art

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