    One of my favorite songs of all time. Finding a version that Elvis did was just a bonus. :up:

    No doubt a classic and a must from time to time.

    I will say, this is probably my favorite version, though. I love when our band does it live :up:

    A favorite of mine too!
    Our band did that for years. Our pianist was a Chris Tomlin nut.

    Shackled by a heavy burden
    Need the Lord again and shame
    Then the hand of Jesus touched me
    And now I am no longer the same

    For He touched me, He touched me
    He touched me and what a wonderful joy
    What wonderful joy that foods my soul
    Something happened and now I know
    He touched me and made me whole

    Oh since I met this blessed Savior
    And since he cleaned and me me whole
    Oh I never cease, never cease to prise Him
    I'll shout it while eternity rolls

    Oh He touched me, oh He touched me
    And oh what a joy that floods my soul
    Something happened and now I know
    He touched me and made me whole

    I'm more of a contemporary Christian fan, but songs like How Great Thou Art are always fun to sing in church. The musicians at our church usually take the old hymns and modernize the arrangement. You must have grown up going to a church where they sang traditional hymns. I rarely attended church until I was in my 20's.

    Gotta say lyrics like that are few and far between. A lot of worship is just singing in praise. Nothing wrong with that, but I like the personal struggle written into these lyrics. They identify what goes on in the minds of every Christian.

    Everyone fights their own internal battle to behave in a manner pleasing to God.

    We all fail miserably, and are unworthy of His grace.

    :oops:

    You rock, thank you for posting that.

    I've actually been meaning to post this one for at least a week now. For some reason, I have not been able to get it out of my head. It has been their 24/7, for couple weeks now. I keep trying to figure out what message I am supposed to be getting from it.

    Anyone been to one of those shows? I'm looking forward to it.

    That song gets a lot of airplay. It hasn't been stuck in my head. They played "What a Beautiful Name" during Easter service yesterday and that has been in my head. i think they do it better than the original.

    A few years old, but I absolutely love the lyrics. It's sometimes hard to remember that trials are blessings meant to keep us close to God.
