how great thou art

You may have already watched this video.
I can't imagine how many times I've watched it today.
I may be personally responsible for more than half of the 900,000+ views.  I've been singing it all day.
I love singing with this video.  My family may be tired of it.
I really love watching the crowd.  A moment of worship spontaneously erupts.
It reminds me of the words of John from Revelation 5, describing the 24 elders and four creatures worshipping our Lord,
"'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.' 
Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever.  They lay their crowns before the throne and say: 
'You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created and have their being.'"
No matter how famous or rich or common we are, we will all bow down to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
When Christ shall come, with shout of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart.
Then I shall bow, in humble adoration,
And then proclaim: "My God, how great Thou art!"

I think I may have been responsible for the other half of the views :) Pretty sure I cried every time I watched it too! -Nicole
