How Great Thou Art Lyrics Wall Art & Decor
Did you know that every verse of the song How great thou art was written by a different person, in a different language in a different part of the world? Each verse is a story of someone amazingly seeing God.
From a missionary who stumbled upon a bible study of a woman reading the Bible to her family and them crying out to God with words like "And when I think that God, His Son not sparingly 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,"
The final verse was composed in a British refugee camp after a worker spoke with a Russian man whose wife had died, and he felt he'd see her again in paradise.
The song is so beautiful. Here are some How Great Thou Art Lyrics on Wall Art & Decor and gifts inspired by the song.
1. How Great Thou Art Lyrics Handmade Paper Wall Décor by LennyandEva
The homemade paper has always been a favorite of mine! I worked at a camp during my undergraduate years.
We had various people come in each week to teach the kids how to build something. Someone came in one week and demonstrated how to manufacture homemade paper to the campers. I believe I enjoy the class more than any of my fellow campers.
There's just something so lovely about it. When I first saw this piece of artwork, I fell in love with it since it is so lovely.
This is the perfect gift for the artist in your family
2. How Great Thou Art Lyrics on Printable Wall Art by GoodGraceOnly
This piece of art has the words to the song, it is so great! Every verse is printed, and since each verse tells a very special story, I love that each verse is printed.
This is an excellent present for a buddy who likes this music. This is a fantastic gift for someone who has recently lost a loved one.
When we lose someone, we care about, everyone tries to help us in the first few days, but after a few months, everyone has forgotten about our grief. On the first anniversary, give this gift and make sure they know you remembered.

O Lord my God when I in awesome wonder Consider all the worlds thy hands have made
The blooms are stunning. When passing by a lovely garden, you must stop and admire the flowers.
I am constantly reminded of God's greatness as a creator. Each blossom is distinct. And they're all stunning.
I appreciate how God created such a diverse range of things and how each component of creation directs us back to him.
4. Bedroom Wall Décor by SusanFernArt
O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout the universe displayed
A huge storm passed over our area last weekend. It was the worst storm I've ever experienced. We lost many trees. A few homes in our area also suffered roof damage. It was terrifying.
The thunder was one of the things that blew our minds. It seemed to go on forever. It didn't appear to slow down. Something about the rumbling thunder draws our attention back to God.
5. Christian Home Decor Print Art by PrintItEngineer
Sometimes you just need a simple piece of art. This is an excellent example. I like how simple it is while being elegant and polished. Walking that line needs a true artist.
This would be an excellent gift for someone who lives in a small apartment.
6. How Great Thou Art Lyrics Vintage Sheet Music Aged Antique Hymn by DownThePathCreations
I love the hymn sheet.
I adore antique hymn books. I have three of them on my living room shelf. While I enjoy some aspects of modern worship, I miss having access to the old hymnals. I am a public speaker who has been invited to speak at many churches.
I am always looking forward to the worship time before I speak in a church that still uses antique hymnals.
This is a wonderful present for a loved one or family member who enjoys ancient hymns.

Then sings my soul my savior God to thee, How great thou art
How frequently does your heart sing to God, extolling His greatness? We often get so wrapped up in our lives, which are full of both good and bad things, that we forget to tell God how amazing he is.
On my early morning walks with the dog, though, when I hear the birds sing, my soul does scream out to God, telling Him how awesome He is.
There are times when our soul screams out to God because we love him so passionately.
8. Printable in Minimalist Style by EdenViewHome
How great thou art
Sometimes that is all you need to say.
How often does your heart praise God and proclaim His greatness? We are so caught up in our daily lives, which are full of both good and unpleasant things, that we forget to tell God how wonderful he is.
When I take my dog on a walk early in the morning and hear the birds sing, my spirit screams out to God, telling Him how awesome He is. Because we love God so much, there are times when our souls shout out to him.
9. Classic Traditional Hymn Print by ThePathsOfLife
When through the woods, and forest glades I wander, And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees. When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.
This work of art consists solely of text. Such a simple but lovely work of art. I appreciate how it appears to have been typed on an ancient typewriter.
Our property has a river that flows through the back. I enjoy going out on the river with my paddleboard.
My soul connects with God when I paddle by the trees and feel the soothing breeze. Natural beauty has a way of connecting us to God.
10. How Great Thou Art Lyrics Wall Art by SusanFernArt
O Lord my God, When I in awesome wonder, consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made; I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
I enjoy sitting by our campfire in the summer and gazing at the stars. The stars were the first thing we saw as we moved from the city to the country. We could now see the stars without the city's light pollution. My spouse and I would sit outside and gaze at the stars for hours.
There is something amazing about the fact that God created the stars and that the same God made us.

12. How Great Thou Art Printable Wall Art by MasseyDesignsCo
When Christ shall come, with a shout of acclamation, And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart. Then I shall bow, in humble adoration, And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"
This is my personal favorite verse from the song. Every time I hear it, all I want to do is scream to God, "Please come soon!" I discovered that the song was created by a volunteer in a refugee camp when researching the narrative behind it. He encountered an elderly Russian man who claimed that after his wife died, he became a Christian.
She was the only one who had seen him. He was looking forward to seeing her again in Heaven and telling her that he had become a Christian. What a beautiful story. No wonder it is my favorite verse.
13. Black and White Scripture Art by AshleyCampbellArt
How great thou art.
I love the Cursive and simple black and white of this piece of art. This is a great gift option for a teacher, especially a music teacher. My girls took piano for years and I was always looking for a good gift for Christmas and end-of-the-year recitals. This is a wonderful idea for the Christian music teacher.
This would look wonderful hanging on the wall in any Christian music school.
14. Hymn Printable by SweetCitrusDesign
I love this printable artwork. I would use this when making a craft for one of my Sunday school students. I am always looking for ideas for awards for the students who have memorized large portions of the Bible. This printable would work for creating a great award for any Sunday school student.
Over the years this song has touched the lives of so many people. As soon as I hear it I have goosebumps. Everyone I know loves this song. We all have stories or memories associated with this song. If you are looking for a gift for an occasion this is a great option.
