How Great Thou Art?? What Do You Think?

  1. While the sound of screaming heavy metal is as offensive to my ears as the sound of two people I love yelling at each other, I have become very aware of a world, intertwined at one time with my own, where the lost children of this generation drift down a sewage filled existence. Cutting themselves, drugging themselves, drinking as much poison as they can keep down, infecting each other with sexually transmitted diseases, murdering their offspring, brutalizing each other in barbaric ways, and in general, trying to find ways to cope with the pain of living, they wander through a Godless vacuum of domestic violence, divorce, abandonment, drug/alcohol induced poverty, racism, and ignorance. They live in a world without beauty, without hope, victims of sins against them and yet criminals in their own rejection of and rebellion against God and all He done to help them. At least this song, done in this fashion, might bring a lost human soul to the idea that there is a great and mighty God, The Creator, who is indeed real and worthy of THEIR worship and who has provided a way to have the condemnation of THEIR sin against Him removed and who mercifully makes the condemned stop loving the sewer and fills the dead heart with love for the Savior. It's hard to say that this version of "How Great Thou Art" is acceptable, but I cry out that God would reach these broken, hellish children with His grace. Maybe this song might do just that. Since this song was written in honor of God, and to worship Him, I personally can't imagine anyone worshiping God while screaming. However, the fact that someone took the time to produce it and put it on the internet makes me wonder, and to pray, that God will awaken a dead soul, while listening to it, to His greatness.
