Lyrics of “How Great Thou Art” —–

[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

[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!

[Verse 2]
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 see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

[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!

[Verse 3]
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

[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!

[Verse 4]
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 then proclaim: “My God, how great Thou art!”

[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!

God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

Wow! It’s December now! It’s the season to celebrate Christmas, the holiday to remember Christ’s birth. I would like to post this Christmas hymn sung by GLAD, which is “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen“, meaning “God make you mighty, gentlemen”.

(This was my first Christmas carol request for the Christmas Carol Contest on Lee Duigon’s blog.)

Here’s one with lyrics:

 

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

thank
— Thanksgiving 2018 ~ November 22nd —

Today in America it’s Thanksgiving Day!

It is the time to say thank you to God for all the things he has so graciously given us! We must thank God for the food we eat everyday, our families, and our lives! God made us, and we are His people. We must always be thankful to Him, not just on Thanksgiving, but on every day of our lives!

Thank You God for making us, for nourishing us, for our families, and for everything in this life! Above all, Thank You for the Lord Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ name, amen!

Here is a hymn praising God for the blessings which He always gives us!

 

 

Amazing Grace

I posted this hymn a few days ago, but I want to post it again! Why not?

Amazing Grace“, sung by American country singer Alan Jackson.

Alan Jackson – Amazing Grace

Lyrics:              (from YouTube)

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares,
I have already come;
’tis grace hath brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
than when we first begun.

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
was blind, but now I see.

 

 

Holy, Holy, Holy!

 

This is one of my favorite hymns – “Holy, Holy, Holy”, sung by Steve Green. The hymn was written by Reginald Heber. God is infinitely holy, and we must serve Him and remain faithful to Him to the end!

Lyrics: (from LyricsWiki)

Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning
Our song shall rise to thee
Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty!
God in three persons
Blessed trinity!

Holy, holy, holy!
All the saints adore thee
Casting down their golden crowns
Around the glassy sea
Cherubim and seraphim
Falling down before thee
Which wert and art
And evermore shalt be

Holy, holy, holy!
Though the darkness hide thee
Though the eye of sinful man
Thy glory may not see
Only Thou art holy
There is none beside thee
Perfect in pow’r
In love and purity.

Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty!
All thy works shall praise thy name
In earth and sky and sea
Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty
God in three persons
Blessed trinity!

The Hymn of Joy

In the summer of 1785, a German poet by the name of Friedrich Schiller wrote the well-known ode, or poem, “Ode to Joy”.

In 1824, the great German composer, Ludwig van Beethoven completed the Symphony No. 9, probably the most famous piece of classical music, using the words “Ode to Joy”.

And in the year 1907, Henry van Dyke, an American, wrote the poem “The Hymn of Joy”, commonly known as “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee”, setting it with Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”.

“Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee” is a much loved hymn, and here we have my favorite Christian singing group, GLAD, singing it a cappella!

Lyrics: (from Wikipedia)

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flow’rs before Thee
Op’ning to the Sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
fill us with the light of day!
All Thy works with joy surround Thee
Earth and heav’n reflect Thy rays
Stars and angels sing around Thee
center of unbroken praise
Field and forest, vale and mountain
Flow’ry meadow, flashing sea
chanting bird and flowing fountain
call us to rejoice in Thee!
Thou art giving and forgiving
ever blessing, ever blest
well-spring of the joy of living
ocean-depth of happy rest
Thou the Father, Christ our Brother—
all who live in love are Thine
Teach us how to love each other
lift us to the Joy Divine!
Mortals join the mighty chorus
which the morning stars began
Father-love is reigning o’er us
brother-love binds man to man.
Ever singing, march we onward
victors in the midst of strife
joyful music lifts us sunward
in the triumph song of life!

 

How Great Thou Art

The great classic hymn,”How Great Thou Art”, by Carl Boberg, is definitely one of my favorite hymns. I like this version sung by Steve Green, and here it is.

Lyrics:

Verse 1:

O Lord, my God! when I in awesome wonder,

Consider all the worlds Thy hand has 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!

Verse 2:

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:

 

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!

Verse 3:

When Christ shall come with shouts 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!

 

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!
