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!

In Christ Alone

This was Mrs. Linda Sorci’s favorite hymn -“In Christ Alone”. I heard from Mr. Lee Duigon that she went to be with the Lord. I am saddened, but also am happy that she is with God and her family in Heaven now. I want to post this hymn in her memory.

 

Lyrics:

In Christ alone my hope is found
He is my light, my strength, my song
This Cornerstone, this solid ground
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm
What heights of love, what depths of peace
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease
My Comforter, my All in All
Here in the love of Christ I stand

In Christ alone, who took on flesh
Fullness of God in helpless babe
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones He came to save
‘Till on that cross as Jesus died
The wrath of God was satisfied
For every sin on Him was laid
Here in the death of Christ I live

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost it’s grip on me
For I am His and He is mine
Brought with the precious blood of Christ

 
No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me
From life’s first cry to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny
No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
‘Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand
