How Great Thou Art
(Words and Music by Stuart K Hine)
Originally a Swedish folk melody,
"O Store Gud" by Carl Boberg (1859-1940)
was translated by Stuart K. Hine in 1899.

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 in humble adoration
And there proclaim my God How Great Thou Art
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

Only a few hours before Elvis’s death, his close friend
Rick Stanley heard him reciting a Christian prayer of
repentance. "Dear Lord," he prayed, "please show me a way.
I'm tired and confused and I need your help."

When we remember Elvis, we often recall his wild side,
shooting televisions, his addiction to pain-killers,
womanising. Yet the King of Rock’n’Roll, fallen as we
all are, had another side to him. Elvis was, in fact,
a deeply spiritual man whose faith was central to his life.
He certainly struggled to live a moral life, but his
intentions were clear to all his friends. Every day he
would strive to become closer to God. "He was a deeply
spiritual man;" claims Ray Walker of The Jordanaires, the
legendary quartet that sang with Elvis for many years,
"he was more spiritual than anyone around him."
