Thankfulness Through Song ~ “How Great Thou Art” {Day 12}

I

had another song picked out for today, but then just read that a homeschool family  in the area lost their daughter in a car accident today.  My heart breaks for them.  Right before Thanksgiving . . .  before Christmas. It will all be a blur of months ahead for them.  We know this time too well, with the loss of a child.   I looked at one of their son’s Facebook page, and this is what he wrote:    \

Oh 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 through out the universe displayed… And all these displayed in my sister Anneke – beauty you compare only to the stars loved like rolling thunder… I love you Lord for her and the time I was blessed with to get to know her.

In everything give thanks.  What a demonstration!  WOW!  Yes, How Great Though Art!  And what hope we have!

How Great Though Art
When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home- what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, my God, how great thou art!

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art!
