How Great Thou Art (75th anniversary version) – Matt Redman, Chris Tomlin, Hillary Scott, TAYA & Friends

How Great Thou Art is one of the world’s most loved hymns, so it was a huge privilege being invited to write a new section for this 75th anniversary version. My co-writer Mitch Wong and I were keen in this new lyric to acknowledge the reality of the broken and warring world we live in – but then to sing with faith and hope over that. I loved seeing the song come to life in the recording moment – with 15 friends, some of the most wonderful worship leaders and artists around, joining together in the studio.

Best of all, the proceeds – wherever this song is sung or listened to – will benefit The Stuart Hine Trust CIO bringing humanitarian relief in Eastern Europe.

Lyrics

O Lord my God
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all the works Thy hand hath made
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder
Thy pow’r 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!

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

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 Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home – what joy shall fill my heart!
Then shall I bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God how great Thou art!

Until that day When heaven bids us welcome
And as we walk this broken warring world
Your kingdom come, Deliver us from evil
And we’ll proclaim our God how great You are!
With hope we’ll sing our God how great You are!

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!
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
