A Sunday Hymn

a-sunday-hymn

Growing up Sunday’s were always all about church. We would all pile into the mini van and head to Sunday Sacrament that began at 9 AM and went until noon. The five of us would file down the pew and I would look up next to the organ to see what the hymns were. Every Sunday I would look up and check if my favorite hymns were chosen. My all time favorite is How Great Thou Art. Every time I sang this hymn in church I could feel the presence of God around me and the warmth of love surrounding me.

I’ve heard the song redone by many artist and choirs. I’m going to have to say that Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill’s version is hands down the best. You can feel her belief in every word she sings. It’s exactly what I needed to hear this Sunday.

For some reason I felt the need to share this with you all today. Just a feeling I have. Maybe someone out there needed to hear this hymn today too.

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

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!

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 burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died to take away my sin.

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 Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And lead me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow with humble adoration,
And then proclaim, “My God, how great Thou art!”

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!
