Wynonna Judd, The Gaither Vocal Band and Larry Strickland perform a heartfelt rendition of ‘How Great Thou Art.’
This classic hymn was originally written in 1885 by Swedish evangelist, Rev. Carl Boberg. He is credited with setting the words 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 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”
Today, musical legends Wynonna Judd, The Gaither Vocal Band and Larry Strickland come together for a stunning performance of ‘How Great Thou Art.’
This song was performed at the emotional tribute for the late Loretta Lynn titled, ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Celebration of the Life and Music of Loretta Lynn.’
Just listen as they belt out these beautiful words of worship.
“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”
Isaiah 40:29 “He gives power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increases strength.”
