Everyone loves a great story. How about the story behind a hymn that we sing over and over in church. Check out the story behind the hymn “How Great Thou Art,” on the website called lifespringonline.com.
This free podcast is brought to you by Steve Webb, a voiceover talent. Steve tells the story of a 26-year-old Swedish minister named Carl Boberg. How in 1885 he wrote a poem which he called “O Store Gud” (“O Mighty God”). The english translation of the poem is below.
When I the world consider
Which Thou has made by Thine almighty Word
And how the web of life Thou wisdom guideth
And all creation feedeth at Thy board.
Then doth my soul burst forth in song of praise
Oh, great God,
Oh, great God!
