Joo ha nah... by Boberg

In October I will be leading a hymn sing commemorating the 150th anniversaries of the birth of Katharine Lee Bates and Carl Gustav Boberg. When I look in the Hymnary database for texts by Boberg, I find two: his magnificat (found in the current Covenant Hymnal) and the first line of a transliterated Korean (I think!) version of "How Great Thou Art". But try as I might I can't figure out what hymnal the Korean version is in. How can I track down this sort of source?

First, note that there are two author records for C.G. Boberg. You can find them by clicking the "People" tab and searching for Boberg. They should really be merged, but I won't do it right now because it will change the results you get.

Once you get to one of the Boberg pages,, click on the "O Lord my God..." entry. You should see information about the text.

Now click the 'Instances' tab. You should see 14 (or 27) hymnals containing the hymn. If you want to find the one that has "Joo ha nah min jee..." as the first line, click the Add/Remove Columns link and show first lines of the instances. Then you can find the one you want.
