how great Thou art

this post is my favorite song and some of His greatest blessings to me.

-- i know that when people post songs, it is easy to breeze by them. but, man, these words are unbelievable. really read them. then, go back and read about my blessings!

"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":
"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 see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze":

"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":

"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":
"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 then proclaim 'My God, how great Thou art!":
"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":

-- if i had a picture of Jesus or Heaven, i would put it here. the day is coming, though, when i will see Him in heaven and can sing Him this song and thank Him for all of the blessings He gave me on earth!

* EDIT * I didn't forget Kevin and Katie! I'm giving each of them a whole post in the near future. Both of them are massive blessings in my life. They are honestly some of the most fun and enjoyable people I know and I love them so much.

  4. That was beautiful, Kristen.

    I so respect your love for God and your gratefulness for the little things--and the big things--in life.

    I love you girl! And I count it a privilege and joy to know you.

    (I'm sorry again!--but it'll still be fun working together...) :)
