A St. Cloud man's well-timed Minnesota re-rendering of the Doxology has gone viral.

On Monday, Josh Svendsen of St. Cloud posted a short 35-second video of him singing the Doxology hymn -- in three-part harmony -- with a bit of  Minnesota twist:

"Praise God from Whom all blizzards flow
Praise Him at 35 below
Praise Him in snow drifts ten feet deep
Praise Him, though winter makes us weep
It's really cold.

Josh credits the inspiration to author and writer Linda Bonney Olin, who penned her own lyrical re-working of the Christian hymn.

In the four days since posting, the video has racked up over 216k views and been shared over 5k times.

This isn't the first time Svendsen's work has gone viral. Back in July, he competed in a local Chick-Fil-A contest. His short video of him expressing his love for Chick-Fil-A -- also in three-part harmony -- earned him over 16k views and --ultimately -- 25 free chicken sandwiches.
