    How great thou art_ Janet Linker

    Hi All

    I have been trying to find the sheet music by Janet Linker_How great Thou art.

    I have been emailing some shops overseas but had no joy.
    sheetmusicplus / Beckonhorst Press / hopepublishing / jw peppers, etchttp://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/how-great-thou-art-sheet-music/35304


    I was just wondering if there is anyone who can assist with the sheet music.

    Your help will be appreciated!

    many thanks!

    perhaps try some of the religious music publishers..Lorenz etc ...google her and see if it shows a publisher for her music.

    I wish you the Best for each day, now and always.

    There are several collections of music on sheetmusicplus

    More specifically: How Great Thou Art. One can purchase directly from them - I have purchased from this outfit many times.

    Her biographical information appears on the Lorenz Publishing site here.

    O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
    ............Cmaj..... Am ....Gmaj
    Consider all the worlds Thy Hands have made
    .............Cmaj .................Fmaj
    I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
    ................Cmaj......... ....Am ......Gmaj
    Thy power throughout the universe displayed

    .....................Cmaj....... Fmaj ...........Cmaj
    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
    ........................Gmaj.................. Cmaj
    How great Thou art, how great Thou art
    ......................Cmaj..........Fmaj......... Cmaj
    Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
    ......................Gmaj..............Cmaj
    How great Thou art, how great Thou art

    Take it away gvballa!

    dub dub dub dub dub and then he's dyin',
    with all the nations cryin',
    His life He shed, to prove He could come back,
    it's been so long, the faith is getting fainter,
    a new worst of times, a pollution watershed.

    so sings my soul, as I feel the healing,
    He's there for me, when I can't even kneel.
    let all our souls, be as one as we are singing,
    express our art, for how great Thou are.

    I see new skies, as new rain falls that's sticking,
    the new ashes of shame, just fell on me.
    As my eyes struggle, to see past helpless horizons,
    what dominion, have you given over me?

    So hear the sound, of all these devices,
    we work around, this electric misery.
    We force our earth, sucked through copper coils,
    the spun spinning, the spin winning, our negative energy.

    "So sings the wire, dividing up our skies,
    while satellites, micro-wave our minds.
    We pay the bills, the wars we subsidize,
    how code their art, how sold we are."

    Krummhorn, thank you, yes thank you, when it could be so easy to offend.

    I'm actually editing these in real life and saying I'm writing additional verses for traditional hymns,
    and people are listening.
    A man I didn't know came up to me in No Frills, and said "you're the bank robber".
    I was taken aback at first, but he was smiling and was saying, I know you, I know you,
    with maybe a heavy Greek accent, something like that.
    He started talking about food and how rough humanity is getting, chemicals, sounding scientific,
    and then he asked me if I would go with him tonight for a meeting with a pastor.
    He says the pastor comes to visit his group of five or six, and he'd give me a ride.

    When I said I might not fit in, writing new verses for traditional hymns, he just looked at me,
    so I said a verse and he was nodding along like it was okay.
    This made me feel good enough to ask him if there was going to be any cookies.
    Last week, in St. Catharines, I was asked if I could get up in a church and talk.
    This would be a migrant worker church for Caribbean islanders.
    I would have gone if I could have got there, so we've been exchanging email.

    Now Krummhorn, I've seen enough of you here and know of your professional career,
    lots of gigs in churches, maybe cathedrals.
    This isn't so much about me as it is the Holy Bible I have and my explanations.
    Here's a scan to only be real about it, and as you can see,
    my Holy Bible doesn't end at Revelation.
    Anyone can say scanning it this was isn't being respectful, or worse,
    and I felt like an idiot folding it out and pressing it down.
    I can rotate this in my pictures, and re-title it,
    but even with the re-title, the original scan shows with the new title.
    Hmm! A thread like How Great Thou Art should be able to handle this.

    I know what you are saying, when you say I'm a hoot, a deep compliment,
    about a deep enjoyment, and a primary word, like watt, like crumb.
    I am glib compared to that. yeah, no gosh dangs or gollies for you.
