Carrie Underwood Sings Live Rendition Of 'How Great Thou Art'

Country megastar Carrie Underwood sings to Heaven with a live performance of ‘How Great Thou Art.’


This classic hymn was originally written in 1885 by Swedish evangelist, Rev. Carl Boberg. He is credited with setting the words to a Swedish folk melody.

The hymn then became translated to German, to Russian, and then into English by English missionary Stuart Hine. He was inspired while working in Ukraine and hearing a congregation sing the song in Russian.

However, ‘How Great Thou Art' did not gain worldwide popularity until George Beverly Shea performed it on a Billy Graham crusade in 1957.

Now the iconic words are performed in churches all across the globe.

"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”

Carrie Underwood became a household name after winning the fourth season of American Idol back in 2005. She won over the hearts of America with covers of songs such as Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" and “Bless The Broken Road” from Rascal Flatts.

After her win, she quickly climbed the country charts and made a solid name for herself in the country music world. It’s been 15 years since that momentous audition and Carrie is committed to using her gift to glorify God.

In 2021, Carrie announced that she would release her first full-length gospel album, My Savior. The album reached number one on the music charts with classic hymns like ‘How Great Thou Art’ and ‘Softly And Tenderly.’

Today, she’s sharing a live performance of ‘How Great Thou Art’ and it’s full of worship and praise for our King.

“Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art"

Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
