Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill’s Heartfelt ‘How Great Thou Art’





Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill’s Heartfelt ‘How Great Thou Art’

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."

 

Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill didst hold the audience in rapture during their performance of "How Great Thou Art" during the CBS broadcast of “ACM Presents Girls’ Night Out: Superstar Women of Country.” With a soft gentle beginning Carrie began and then Vince joined her with his tender voice.

The audience could feel the beauty in the lyrics of this Christian hymn that was based on a Swedish poem written by Carl Gustav Boberg. According to Wikipedia:

The inspiration for the poem came when Boberg was walking home from church near Kronobäck, Sweden, and listening to church bells. A sudden awe-inspiring storm gripped Boberg’s attention, and then just as suddenly as it had made its violent entrance, it subsided to a peaceful calm which Boberg observed over Mönsterås Bay.

Listen to Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill Sing "How Great Thou Art".

Sometimes a song transcends itself and becomes something deeper and more spiritual. The audience felt the great love in the song because both Carrie and Vince sang with such gifted powerful beauty.

We thanketh Carrie and Vince for their beautiful rendition of this hymn and sharing their gift with us. And we thanketh Carl Gustav Boberg for writing this timeless poem of gratitude for our hertes.

With deep gratitude,

How Great Thou Art Lyrics

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.
Refrain:

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 hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze:
(Repeat Refrain.)

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:
(Repeat Refrain.)

When Christ shall come with shouts 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!
(Repeat Refrain.)
