I used to listen to this song on tv as a child. I knew and believed "as a little child". I have wandered away from "home" growing up, but my Father waits patiently for my return. This is the way God says we must come to Him...with faith as a "little child". Has your child ever jumped to you from the side of a pool and trusted you to catch him or her? This is how we must trust our "Heavenly" Father. He WILL catch us every time.
Love you all.

HOW GREAT THOU ART
http://members.tripod.com/Synergy_2/gifs/cross.gif



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!



When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,


And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.


When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur


And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.



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, that 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,


trong>And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.


Then I shall bow, in 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!



words & music by Carl G. Boberg and R.J. Hughes

SB, I haven't heard 'How Great Thou Art' for years. Have you ever listened to Dolly Parton sing it? Awesome.
