July 25, 1899 – “How Great Thou Art”

One of the hymns that always makes the list of favorites is “How Great Thou Art” which was written by a British missionary to Russia named Stuart K. Hine. Hine, an inductee into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1994, was born on July 25, 1899. The lyrics came from a Swedish poem and Hine (who is pictured here) translated it into English from Russian.
