   G                           G7    C
1. O Lord my God, when I       in    awe-seom won-der
2. When thru the woods and for-est   glades I wan-der
3. And when I think that God,  His   Son not spar-ing,
4. When Christ shall come with shout of ac-cla-ma-tion
   
   C        Cdim G          D/F#       D7         G
1. Con-sid -er   all the    worlds Thy hands have made,
2. And hear the  birds sing sweet-ly   in the     trees,
3. Sent Him to   die, I     scarce can take it    in,
4. And take me   Home, what joy shall  fill my    heart!

   G                          G7  C
1. I see the stars, I hear    the roll-ing thun-der,
2. When I look down from loft-y   moun-tains gran-deur,
3. That on the cross, my bur -den glad-ly bear-ing,
4. Then I shall bow in hum   -ble ad-o-ra-tion,

   C         Cdim    G         D/F# D7    G
1. Thy pow'r through-out the   u-ni-verse dis-played.
2. And hear  the     brook and feel the   gen-tle breeze.
3. He bled   and     died to   take a    -way my sin.
4. And there pro    -claim, my God, how   great Thou art!
