Elvis Presley’s 1977 Hit Song “How Great Thou Art “

“…Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art…”

“…almost everybody who is anybody in the business had done it…”

THERE HAD BEEN MANY A-VERSION of How Great Thou Art through the years. Virtually speaking, from A to Z (or A to V in this case). From Allan Jackson to Carrie Underwood. Tennessee Ernie Ford to Vince Gill. You name ‘em, almost everybody who is anybody in the business had done it. From Blues to Rock n’ Roll, Folk to Jazz and everything in between.

“…The King singing to and worshipping THE KING of Kings!”

ONE OF THE BEST EVER for a Male Country Singer (personally speaking) would be by The King himself—THE ELVIS PRESLEY. As one FB Account Member and Elvis fan had POSTED, “Wow, how awesome this is! The King singing to and worshipping THE KING of Kings!”

“The rich bluesy texture, jazzy jive and uplifting gospel tones make this one of his most superb renditions.”

BLESSED WAS ELVIS TO HAVE THE WONDERFUL GIFT of music for God loves music.  And—most definitely—how lucky are we to bear witness to his musicality. This version of his is a testament to the country background and Afro-American influences. The rich bluesy texture, jazzy jive, and uplifting gospel tones make this one of his most superb renditions.

“…Keep on Keepin’ on.”

JUST AS ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY ELSE, Elvis Presley was also (kind of) a bit broken at that time. But, as always we can and all—WITH God and IN God—get fixed. And this is (I feel) his own pick me upper when he is so low and really down there. His go-to song that helps to encourage him to Keep on Keepin’ on.

“…Then sings my soul
My Savior, God, to Thee
How great Thou art
How great Thou art…”

I HOPE y’all enjoyed this last performance (prior to his untimely passing a few months after) of the Late Great Elvis “THE KING” Presley as much as I did.

AS ALWAYS,

“May God Almighty Bless Us All and Set Us FREE!”
