This well-known hymn was first released in 1949, and it immediately gained popularity all around the world. The song that describes the incredible love from our God in Heaven has been covered by various musicians over the years.
“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”
The Statler Brothers began performing music in 1955, and they kept doing so until they decided to stop in 2002. These gifted men have given us tunes over the years including “Flowers On The Wall” and “Do You Know You Are My Sunshine?”
Lew DeWitt, a founding member of the band, performs in this retro concert just before getting sick and having to stop travelling with them. The Statler Brothers mentioned playing at least one gospel song throughout their concerts before the hymn. This practice has undoubtedly contributed to the men in this group becoming country music icons. Just pay attention as they sang “How Great Thou Art’s” stirring lyrics.
“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!”
There is no greater way to exalt our Lord than to proclaim His numerous miracles to the entire world. Who else is joining in on this well-known hymn?
