Music Ministry Moment
Another hymn that’s in my top five of all-time favorites is How Great Thou Art (UMH 77). Its music starts softer in dynamic, and has a natural crescendo leading up to the chorus. The chorus is loud, which supports the lyrics of the chorus.
As I mentioned before, “How Great Thou Art” has been one of my most favorite hymns since I was a kid. I think this is mainly because it talks about all of these great things about nature in the first couple of verses. Growing up in the mountains of Colorado, my brother and I would go on hikes with my grandpa on the small mountain that backed up to my grandparents’ house. All you could hear were the birds singing in the pine trees. It was amazing, and to this day hearing birds sing is one of my favorite sounds to listen to. We also went on a few hikes near creeks that ran through town, and running water like that is another favorite sound I still like to listen to. The last two verses speak about Jesus’ sacrifice for us, and because of that sacrifice, he will take us to heaven when that time comes for us. During the chorus, we praise God for all the amazing things he gives us in the verses.
My hope is that this hymn gives you some joy this week. Try to find something that you praise God for, even if it’s something small. My constant prayer is that you and your families stay safe during the pandemic.
With the Spirit of Praise,
