Guitar arrangement by Rich DeRuiter (rich@guitarhymns.com)


A E       A           A/F D/F#    D
O Lord my God! When I in  awesome wonder
   Cdim  A       E6         E7         A
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made,
  E       A        A    A/F D/F#    D
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
    Cdim         A/E     E6 E7       A
Thy power throughout the universe displayed:

(Chorus:)
     E        A        D             A
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee
F#m            Bm   Esus E          A
How great Thou art! How  great Thou art!
     E        A        D             A/C#
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee
F#m            Bm   Esus E7         A
How great Thou art! How  great Thou art!

A    E           A           A/F  D/F#     D
When through the woods and forest glades I wander
    Cdim     A          E6      E7     A
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
     E      A         A  A/F D/F#     D
When I look down from lofty  mountain grandeur
    Cdim     A/E       E6       E7     A
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze:

(Chorus)

A   E      A               A/F D/F#    D
And when I think that God, His Son not sparing,
     Cdim   A      E6         E7      A
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;
     E      A         A   A/F D/F#   D
That on the cross, my bur-den gladly bearing,
   Cdim     A/E     E6    E7     A
He bled and died to take away my sin:

(Chorus)

A    E            A               A/F D/F# D
When Christ shall come with shout of  acclamation
    Cdim    A          E6        E7      A
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
     E       A      A   A/F D/F# D
Then I shall bow in humble  ado -ration,  
    Cdim     A/E       E6       E7         A
And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!
