Psalm 104:1 “Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord, You are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty.”
Many of us have heard old hymns in church or on the radio.
Have you ever paid attention to the words?
I will share one of my favorite hymns “How Great Thou Art” and help you understand.
Maybe next time you hear the hymn you will have a new outlook on it.
“Oh Lord, our 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. “
This means WOW, look around at all our God has created!
The sun, the stars, even the thunder we hear. The same God who made YOU!
“And when I think of 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.”
This means being thankful to The Lord who sent His Son, Jesus, to die for OUR sins! Awesome!
“When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation and lead me home, what joy shall fill my heart! Then I shall bow with humble adoration, and then proclaim, ‘My God how great Thou art!”
This means when Jesus comes for us we can be happy that we will live an amazing eternity in Heaven!
After each stanza there is this amazing chorus that we can sing and thank God for being so wonderful to us ALWAYS.
“Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, how great Thou art, how great Thou art. Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee, how great Thou art, how great Thou art!”
Our God is amazing and loves us each so much! Let’s open our ears to older hymns we hear and appreciate what God has done and will do for us!
