AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

How Great Thou Art is a stripped-down collection of gospel standards, performed only on guitar, piano and, occasionally, upright bass. Apart from two new songs from Willie Nelson, the album consists entirely of traditional gospel material, such as "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot." Nelson offers no revelations over the course of How Great Thou Art, but it is a pleasing, idiosyncratic country gospel record.
