deep in thought

I was outside recently, listening to my iPod, and came across the song "How Great Thou Art." I am a huge country music fan, but I also listen to Christian music as well, but I am not that into hymns. But there are a few that I really love, How Great Thou Art being one of them. 

As I was listening to this song, I just closed my eyes and listened to every word of it. There is not a time or place where this song would be inappropriate, each verse talks about the greatness of God, and just how powerful He is.

The last verse talks about the time when I/we will finally come home to God. This is my favorite part of the song, it is usually sung with the most power, and it adds so much to this song.

Then I was thinking about a time when I was watching this song being sung on TV, and our TV was fading out because there were storms. Then I thought, "the first verse talks about the thunder rolling..." When the song got done, I realized, that we could not really hear the song because the "thunder was rolling", but in a way, we really were hearing the song, outside.

All I could do was think "Wow! Our God truly is amazing!"

I may have posted this video before, but no matter how many times it is watched, it is amazing each time.


  1. It's one of my favorites for the same reasons you mentioned. It's one of those songs that makes me tear up, when I pay attention to the words.
    We did it Sunday with our praise team and it was awesome!

  2. I've seen this video before and it doesn't matter- it gives me chills every single time.
    Love that song and really love her version of it!

  3. it is an extremely powerful song - i also love that last verse. carrie's version is spectacular - and it seems everyone thinks so
