How Great is Our Lord (original hymn)
Organ and Choir/Congregation
This is an original hymn tune I wrote a few years ago with a text supplied by Robb Smith.
For the hymn version, Qtr = 80 is probably about “cathedral speed” and fits the character of this hymn tune and text. (Note that the anthem version of this song starts out with Qtr = 88, but has several tempo changes.) Sing the hymn as slowly as you need to without it feeling draggy in the sadly dry acoustic environment of most LDS buildings. An mp3 with a “Verse 6” registration is included so you can hear how it sounds.
