Dad Sings Powerful Rendition Of 'How Great Thou Art'

Listen to the dad of this beautiful Christian family sing a powerful rendition of ‘How Great Thou Art.’

For this cover of ‘How Great Thou Art,’ Ulysses performed in front of a plain background. His black suit really helped that vintage microphone stand out! Since there wasn’t much of a visual performance, you really get to listen to the words in this Christian classic.

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 then proclaim, my God, how great Thou art

A Swedish preacher named Carl Boberg wrote the words to ‘How Great Thou Art.’ A strong storm on a beach in Sweden inspired him because the weather went from dark and frightening to sunny and uplifting in a matter of seconds. Carl felt so overwhelmed by what he witnessed that he dropped to his knees to praise God.

During the 1900s, the song made its way to the U.S. was published and popularized by Billy Graham. Since then, a bunch of artists has recorded covers. It’s no wonder that these lyrics have become one of the most recognizable Christian songs.
