Chris Tomlin – How Great Is Our God lyrics

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

    He is ne & only almighty god who loves us inspite of all our weaknesses and repeated failings. He is ever so watchful and pulls us out of our every failure. We forget our need of him in our lives and think we make it on our own. Only when we turn to him and things fall into place miraculously, we are reminded of how great is our god, our everloving and ever present god in our lives. Turn to him always! He never will fail you. He takes you to it, he will see you through it!

    "How Great is our God!" For me, it means that it just really shows how great our God can be. He made the heavens and the earth! He made a way even when there is no way. He showed you the right path. He directed you to him. He pulled you out of your failures. He solved your problems. He still picked you up despite your sins. He helped you deal with everything you had to deal with. So, all you have to do is give your whole heart and soul to Him. Sing to Him! Worship Him! Praise Him! Do not be afraid to face life's obstacles. He is our God. Ad this is how great our God is.

    This song came to my head when I was praying for my daughter whilst driving her to school. It gave us strength to know that our God is great. We will remember that He set us apart and captured our hearts; to know that each of us is special in our own way.

    Our god creator sustainer and lord of his creation, chose to send his son to die for my sin. When I was a wicked vile and evil person. He did this be cause he loved me. I do not under stand this and never will. I spent moat of my life trying to make it clear to folks and a few did believe, but not enough. Truly how great is our god. That he created us and when we rebled against him murded his son he accepted his sons blood as payment for our sin. Truly how great is our god. Thank you for your song. It means to me the security that when I mess up ther is still for giveness in him.

    God is great and no other can take his place! He saved my married and made us stronger. He have let my husband lived longer evening when the doctors wasn't sure. My husband has been very blessed to be here after 8 heat attacks and 5 steins! I am grateful for that and everything that he does for me. Thank you god for everything! This is what they means about how great is our god! Amen!
