The words to ‘How Great Thou Art’ sung by Country superstar Reba McEntire make for some worship you don’t want to miss!
Swedish evangelist, Rev. Carl Boberg is credited with writing the words to ‘How Great Thou Art’ and setting them to a Swedish folk melody.
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 George Beverly Shea performed it on a Billy Graham crusade in 1957.
Now the iconic words to ‘How Great Thou Art’ are performed in churches all across the globe.
“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"
