“How Great Thou Art” is a Christian hymn that is based on a poem written by Carl Gustav Boberg in Sweden in 1885. Though it has been nearly 130 years old, this amazing masterpiece still touches the heart and soul of many people today. On a survey done by Today’s Christian Magazine in 2001, it was ranked second on a list of favorite hymns of all time, coming second only to “Amazing Grace.”
This video features an extraordinary performance of this incredible hymn. It was delivered by World Outreach Worship and it also features StikYard. StikYard is a unique percussion ensemble that blends both modern and traditional music. When the clip begins, you hear the different percussion instruments playing under a blue light. These incredible musicians play such a variety of instruments and make incredible music with them. The music gets more and more intense as the song goes on, and the vocals just get better and better.
This amazing performance is definitely worth listening to, but the video also adds to the music. You will enjoy watching them play as much as you enjoy listening to them. This song will really put you in the spirit of the holidays, even though it’s not a traditional hymn. I have it on repeat!
