How Great Thou Art

This is the last song Mom ever sang.  I played it to her, this YouTube video of Amira singing How Great Thou Art, because Grandma Margaret, Mom's mom, used to sing it while puttering around the house, during the time I lived with her in 1981.  I never heard it before or since, until it came up in Amira's opus, which I recently discovered and is truly amazing.  Sure enough, Mom, at a time when she hardly could speak and was generally pretty unresponsive, perked up and sang right along.   I've listened to Amira sing this many times, and I'm almost ready to sing along out loud, too.
