97-Yr-Old Grandpa Sings ‘How Great Thou Art’ to Jesus Just Before Going to Heaven

The bittersweet moment when a loved one slips from this world into eternity is a poignant reminder of our mortality and the vastness of our God. It’s a moment, if only fleeting, that assures us our lives are but a vapor and heaven is home.

If you knew it was your last day on earth, would you spend it singing praises to the King?

That’s exactly what this sweet 97-year-old grandfather did in a video that is now tugging on heartstrings across the Internet.

“I was blessed to capture a video of my 97-year-old grandpa, as he sang: ‘How Great Thou Art’ from his hospital bed, with dear friends and family,” one of his grandchildren wrote on Facebook. “The next morning, he went to be with Jesus.”

Watch this beautiful bedside worship service unfold in the video below:
