Norwegian Beauty -How Great Thou Art!

O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder,

Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made;

Glomma
Glomma-the longest and largest river in Norway

I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy power throughout the universe displayed.

Drammen
Drammen from the top of Spiralen – the spiral tunnel(?)mountain – you come here yourself and ask the name!

When through the woods, and forest glades I wander,

And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees.

When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur

And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.

And when I think, that God, His Son not sparing;

Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in;

That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,

He bled and died to take away my sin

He makes me lie down in green pastures,

he leads me beside quiet waters,

he refreshes my soul.

(Psalm 23)

When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,

And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.

Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,

And then proclaim, “My God, how great Thou art!”

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee,

How great Thou art! How great Thou art!
