Verses:
Oh 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.
 
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation, And take me home what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow with humble adoration, And then proclaim My God How great Thou art.
 
Chorus:
Then sings my soul my Savior God, to Thee, How great thou art, How great Thou art.
Then sings my soul, My Savior God to Thee, How great thou art, How great Thou art.
