This song has been on my mind alot lately and I especially like this arrangement. I was curious about the song’s history, so here’s a bit of it thanks to Wikipedia…  

“How Great Thou Art” is a Christian hymn based on a Swedish poem written by Carl Gustav Boberg (1859–1940) in Sweden in 1885. The melody is a Swedish folk song. It was translated into English by British missionary Stuart K. Hine, who also added two original verses of his own composition. It was popularized by George Beverly Shea and Cliff Barrows during Billy Graham crusades. It was voted the United Kingdom‘s favourite hymn by BBC‘s Songs of Praise. “How Great Thou Art” was ranked second (after “Amazing Grace“) on a list of the favorite hymns of all time in a survey by Today’s Christian magazine in 2001.
