    Woke up considering how important God is to our emotional well being. How connected that part of us is to how we view everything in our lives and how the greater connection is with God, without whom I believe our emotional health would be in a sad state indeed.

    Alie thanks for sharing! This is one of my favorite songs, and it is beautifully done. Every time I've been fortunate enough to stroll along the beach, and experience the majesty of the ocean, this song automatically plays in my head!

    Thanks! I always Identify that song with Bev Shea. He also mentioned a motorcycle club that took the name "Rolling Thunder"...he liked that he had named it!;)

    "When Graham devoted himself to his evangelistic “crusades” in 1947, he invited Mr. Shea to join him. From then on, wherever Graham preached, Mr. Shea sang. He was known for his clean diction, perfect pitch and a robust bass-baritone voice that was as sturdy and as flashy as a tree trunk.

    Mr. Shea had a repertoire of hundreds of hymns — some of which he composed — but was identified with a few familiar favorites, including “The Old Rugged Cross,” “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” and, especially, “How Great Thou Art.” He began singing “How Great Thou Art,” a Swedish hymn written in the 1880s, in the mid-1950s. When Graham preached to more than 2 million people during a prolonged crusade in New York City in 1957, Mr. Shea sang his signature number on more than 100 consecutive nights.

    Two alterations he made in the lyrics of “How Great Thou Art” became so well known that the original words were almost forgotten. Mr. Shea changed “consider all the works thy hands have made” to “all the worlds thy hands have made” and “I hear the mighty thunder” to “I hear the rolling thunder.”
    “I got a bang when I used to hear Elvis Presley sing my two words,” Mr. Shea told the Kansas City Star in 2004".
