How Wonderful Art Thou...


I walk at night beneath majestic skies
And know behind them is a God all-wise,
Who fixed all stars, each in its lonely place,
And wrapped them in a darkened robe of space.


(Chorus)
O mighty God, how wonderful art Thou
To love the world while heav'ns before Thee bow.
I fail to comprehend it all some how.
O mighty God, how wonderful art Thou.



I see the moon, the stars in distant space,
And think of how the God of matchless grace
Is coming in the clouds to claim His own -
Such wonders that on earth cannot be known.


(Chorus)
O mighty God, how wonderful art Thou
To love the world while heav'ns before Thee bow.
I fail to comprehend it all some how.
O mighty God, how wonderful art Thou.



I scan the heav'ns with rapture in my soul

And wonder how the God Who made the whole
Could ever fix His thoughts on such as I
And give His Son upon the cross to die.


(Chorus)
O mighty God, how wonderful art Thou
To love the world while heav'ns before Thee bow.
I fail to comprehend it all some how.
O mighty God, how wonderful art Thou.

O mighty God, how wonderful art Thou.


words: E.D. Eden - music: B.D. Osborn
taken from Majesty Hymns hymnal



" Many, O LORD my God,
are thy wonderful works which thou hast done,
and thy thoughts which are to us-ward:
they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee:
if I would declare and speak of them,
they are more than can be numbered."
~ Psalm 40:5

Thank you and your husband for serving and defending this nation. I am grateful beyond words.

I just came across your site tonight, and I wanted to let you know about a giveaway I'm hosting at my site. It's for all-natural bath and body products made in Texas. Come check it out - and tell your friends!

Thanks!

This reminds me of going to the ocean and I can just feel Him saying, "Be still and know I am God". Awesome!

Hi HsKubes,

Thank you very much for posting this hymn in your blog. The song has been running in my head for three days now. I have learned this song 15 years ago, in a biennial conference during my early days as a Christian. I was wondering why it just pop into my head every time I wanted to sing, but I just forgot most of its lyrics, and I couldn't get the title ( haha!) So I wrote down two lines and read through all the google wall.

The song has been a tremendous blessing to me during my younger days and I would like to keep it in my heart.

Thank you and God bless to you and your family. I'm sorry I didn't know how to address you. I am aiming to create my own blog soon and hope to connect with you.

In Christ,

Maivi

How beautiful are those words? I was searching for the words of a chorale number that we did in Choir about 30 years ago. I think that these words are those or nearly the same. Thanks for posting this. I never forgot them, and I know that Go will never forget us. This has been very meaningful to me. God Bless!
