The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice
All the earth rejoice

He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice
Trembles at His voice

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end
Beginning and the end

The Godhead Three in One
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb
The Lion and the Lamb

Name above all names
Worthy of our praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God

How great is our God, sing with me
How great is our God, and all will see
How great, how great is our God

    I know this song is referring to God, but I don't think God woiuld feel robbed if I dedicated it to my husband, Pastor Ronald Evans! I'm so proud of him for standing and weathering the Storm all for the sake of the Gospel.

    There is no greater than God, just His Name is above every name, that means every disease with a name, His Name is above it. The Lion and the Lamb, strength and gentleness in one. Merciful, loving, awesome. Just one line of this song tells it all. What an amazing spirit inspired song. God bless the writer because he has truly blessed us the hearers. Amen

    The power god has to change any situation no matter how big or small. The love he has for us is unconditional.
