How Great Thou Art
How Great Thou ArtGeorge Beverly Shea turns 100 on Sunday, February 1. Since the time that 1944, when 26-year-old Wheaton College understudy Billy Graham enrolled him to sing on the radio project "Tunes in the Night," Bev Shea has been the face and the voice most related in the general population mind with the renowned evangelist and sang "How Great Thou Art". ?"How Great Thou Art." Is obviously mark tune of Bev Shea?s? Even however almost every gospel craftsman - from Elvis Presley to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir - has recorded it, it is Bev Shea's tune. Here's the account of that melody. ?The first contact of George Beverly Shea's with "How Great Thou Art" was in 1954. In any case, the melody itself dates to 1885, when Swedish minister Carl Gustav Boberg was gotten in a rainstorm. ?It was an electrical storm that, as per legend, struck trepidation into the heart of Martin Luther and extricated from him a promise to wind up a minister. Minister Boberg was filled with awe at the tempest glory, the rainbow, and the splendid light and winged creature melodies that took after the tempest. ?The voice of the LORD hits with flashes of lightning." The tempest's greatness enlivened Boberg (who later got to be manager of the Christian daily paper, Witness of the Truth, and an individual from the Swedish parliament) to similarly make a sonnet of 9 stanzas. "I see the stars, I hear the forceful thunder, /Thy power all through the universe showed." ?In 1986 Boberg distributed the ballad, and then the rights were sold to the Mission Covenant Church in Sweden. After two years he went by a congregation in Varmland and was shocked to hear the assemblage singing his words to an old Swedish people tune. In 1891, Boberg distributed the ballad once more, this time with the tune in Witness of the Truth. ?From Sweden to Nagaland ?In 1922, the Russian variant of "How Great Thou Art" was distributed in America as a feature of an accumulation of Russian dialect psalms by the American Bible Society. The psalm achieved American shores again in 1925, because of a Swede named E. Gustav Johnson who deciphered a few verses of the Swedish unique into English. Around then, in any case, the melody simply didn't get on with American admirers. ?It was the Russian form that got the consideration of English evangelist Stuart K. Hine who with his wife was evangelizing the Ukrainian wide open. Hine utilized the Russian song as a part of his service there and built up an English variant also. The initial two verses of Hine's English reflected Boberg's stunningness at God's energy in nature. To these he added a third verse gave to the astonishing adoration for God communicated in Christ's making amends passing: "And when I surmise that God, His Son not saving, /sent him to bite the dust, I rare can take it in." ?The episode of World War II constrained the Hines back to London, where they kept on evangelizing among war displaced people alarmed by the German barrage. ??
