Verse 1
                 B
O Lord my God
                    E/B
When I in awesome wonder
                B
Consider all the worlds
      C#m/B         B
Thy hands have made
    
I see the stars
                E/B
I hear the rolling thunder
                    B
Thy pow'r thru'out
        C#m/B     B
The universe displayed

Chorus 
                      B
Then sings my soul
        E                    B
My Savior God to Thee
                        C#m7
How great Thou art
                            B
How great Thou art

Then sings my soul
        E                    B
My Savior God to Thee
                            C#m    E
How great Thou art
                           B
How great Thou art

Verse 2
                    B
When thru the woods
                    E/B
And forest glades I wander
                    B
And hear the birds
      C#m/B            B
Sing sweetly in the trees

When I look down
                    E/B
From lofty mountain grandeur
                B
And hear the brook
         C#m/B        B   
And feel the gentle breeze

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Verse 3
                    B
And when I think
                    E/B
That God His Son not sparing
                    B
Sent Him to die
                   C#m/B  B
I scarce can take    it in

That on the cross
                    E/B
My burden gladly bearing
                    B
He bled and died
                C#m/B  B
To take away my  sin

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Verse 4
                            B
When Christ shall come
                        E/B
With shout of acclamation
                    B
And take me home
                      C#m/B    B
What joy shall fill     my heart
        
Then I shall bow
                E/B
In humble adoration
                    B
And there proclaim
                     C#m/B         B
My God, "how great Thou art"
