How great thou art

75 yrs since this amazing hymn was first sung in its current form, sung in a small church nr London, translated from Swedish to Russian to English and now sung all over the world. Recorded by many including Elvis!
It covers the beauty of Gods creation
The sacrifice of Jesus on the cross
His glorious return

Yes God, youre great
Amen and praise the Lord! I love that song. God's grace is truly so amazing that His blood covers our sins forever. We can't fully grasp that but that is the power of God and the blood of Jesus. That doesn't mean that we take advantage of that or as an excuse to sin. That won't work. God knows our hearts and when we're sincere and honest with him. Instead of using "I'm human" as an excuse to walk in the flesh, we should be using, "I'm saved", as a reason to keep walking in the Spirit.

Thank you for this very important post. What a great one!
What a glorious song!!! The words get directly to the heart. I praise God for all He has done and for the greatest sacrifice of all time. No one can match Him or His love. Praise and Glory be to God forever.

Just a bit a trivia regarding this wonderful international hymn. The line Rolling Thunder was written by George Beverly Shea, the singer who made it famous in the Billy Graham crusades.

My mother breaks out in hard sobs when her church starts singing this, it was sung at her father's funeral in 1978.
