Carrie Underwood “How Great Thou Art”

“How Great Thou Art” is a Christian hymn that has roots that go back to the 1880s. The song was originally a poem written by Carl Gustav Boberg of Sweden. It was later translated into English by Stuart K. Hine, who then added additional lyrics. In the ’50s, Manna Music of California purchased the song and also made some minor lyrical changes. The very first person in the U.S. to professionally record the worship song was Bill Carle in 1958 and the song’s popularity soared from there.
