What’s on your IPod? Track 3

What's next on my IPod? How Great Thou Art, performed by Carrie Underwood. I thought it was appropriate to write about this song since today is Sunday, our Lord’s Day.
I first heard Carrie Underwood sing this song on the Opry. Her rendition brought tears to my eyes. There is no way you can listen to this song and not have your soul ripped wide open. The audience was so spellbound that you could have heard a pin drop. As the camera scanned the faces of those in attendance, young and old, there was not a dry eye in the building. When you listen to and watch it on my IPod, you will understand why.
I remember first hearing this song when as a child; I attended the Baptist church with my grandmother. Listening to them rock the room with their music and these words left a lasting impression on my heart. Oh, how much I wanted to be Baptist just to hear this song every Sunday. When the choir sung, it was praise and prayer, as I had never heard before.
I have had so many prayers answered in my own life as well as prayers I have prayed for others. How can you not believe?
Take a moment to listen to it on my IPod (to the left of this post) then look around you. ......Then sings my soul, my Savior, God to Thee, How Great Thou Art........
