My Sunday Song – “How Great Thou Art” performed by Carrie Underwood (dedicated to my Mother)

For My Sunday Song #5, I chose “How Great Thou Art”.  Last week was one of the hardest weeks of my life.  My mother passed away last Sunday and went on to a better place where she can watch down upon us and protect us forever as a mother always does.  This song was sung during her funeral and for that reason, I am dedicating this post to her.  She was loved very much and will certainly be missed.  I feel a little piece of me is now lost, but at the same time I feel her presence with me.

My favorite version of this song was performed by Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill and the song will hold a special place in my heart forever. It was one of the most powerful performances of this song I have ever seen and it moved my to tears as I was listening to it again for this post.  With that, I will leave you with the song to enjoy and these final words…I Love You Mom!!

“HOW GREAT THOU ART”

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

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 of 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 lead me home, what joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow with 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
