A Swedian Pastor named Carl Boberg met a weather-bound. Heavy rain with a scary storm made him on a fear and trembling situation. In the middle of the ocean, he was contemplate by himself, and found that all of that things are made by God. If God can make storm and amazing universe easily, isn’t He a Great God? Then Carl Boberg started to make a poem and singing from it and praying also. After he made that song and singing, he then looks a clear sky comes. Birds are singing together, calm wind go through his boat and his breath. He more to praise God, and Jesus Christ also, his Savior Lord.

When Christ shall come with shouts of acclamation,And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart. Then I shall bow in humble admiration, And there proclaim, my God how great Thou art. (how great our joy filled our heart, and proclaim how great Thou art)
