          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!

            Chorus
            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!

          When thru 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.

            Chorus
            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!

          And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
          Sent Him to die, I scare can take it in.
          That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
          He bled and died to take away my sin!

            Chorus
            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!

          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!

            Chorus
            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!
