If your soul needs stirring, this powerful performance of ‘How Great Thou Art’ by award-winning Christian artists Lauren Daigle and Hillsong UNITED should do the trick!

The hymn then became translated to German, to Russian, and then into English by English missionary Stuart Hine. He was inspired while working in Ukraine and hearing a congregation sing the song in Russian.
However, ‘How Great Thou Art’ did not gain worldwide popularity until it was performed by George Beverly Shea on a Billy Graham crusade in 1957. Now, churches all across the globe perform the iconic words.
“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!'”
