How Great...Truly

I read this early this morning. It was difficult not to sing song it in my mind, but instead I turned down the music in my heart to a soft instrumental background and just slowly prayed the words. What a great way to start another be-a-u-ti-ful California July morning! Who wants to keep an experience like that a secret so... I thought I'd share these powerful truths with you...

Oh Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds thy hands have made
I see the stars and hear the rolling thunder
Your 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

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.

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, 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 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 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!"

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!

Yes Lord, How Great Thou Art!
