“How Great Thou Art” is a popular Christian hymn that originated in Sweden in the 19th century. The original Swedish text was written by Carl Gustav Boberg, and it was later translated into English by Stuart K. Hine.
The hymn has since been translated into numerous languages and has become a beloved classic within various Christian denominations. Its popularity has led to many different arrangements and adaptations over the years, including expanded versions with additional verses or alternate lyrics.
One popular adaptation of “How Great Thou Art” is the version recorded by Elvis Presley, which includes an additional verse and chorus not found in the original hymn. This version has become one of the most well-known and beloved renditions of the song.
Other variations of “How Great Thou Art” include those with added instrumentation or vocal harmonies, as well as versions that incorporate modern worship elements such as contemporary rhythms and electronic instrumentation.
Despite these adaptations, the core message of the hymn remains the same: to praise and worship God for His greatness, power, and love.
