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.

    John 1. In the beginning was the word, and the word was with god, and the word was god. 2. The same was in the beginning with god. 3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 14. And the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the father,) full of grace and truth. To god be the glory, hallelujah!

    Lvguy satan wraps himself in light and. Nothing. God wraps himself in light and satan tries to hide. Trembles at his voice. That's the difference. Satan can pretend all he wants to but only god is great. And the song is about how great he is. Our language can't capture it we don't have the ability to describe the infinite goodness. Worthy of all praise, name above all names. Just not adequate.

    Lvguy, you are entitled to your opinions but I think you misunderstood xd! You're being too doctrinal / literal or maybe you misread the lyrics.
    He's not talking about god trying to hide darkness and sin, he's saying that all the bad things like the devil, sins and the darkness tries to hide from god, and where would they go? In the Darkness where nothing can see them. He is the light that disperses the darkness that the devil brings about. There is a passage where it says that Men will try to hide their deed in the darkness, thought I can't remember in which book it is.
    It's Darkness that's trying to hide, but they can't, because God sees all.

    God is great and no other one can take his place of glory!, for me God great and even greater he safe me, my wife and two (2) sons, 1st is three years old and the other is one year old. Our house is on fire when we all deep asleep, some one waking up my wife, my wife scream shouting Lord help us. So then I wake up I saw the fire burning up the wall, all of us get up and see no one, but some how four of us manage to kill the fire out with the buckets of water. That's how I say God is great even your in the time of trample call on him, he will be there for you, when you did not have some thing to eat, He will provide for you because age and age he stands never ever pass away and the time is in his hands if he wants to takes you home he can do so. And that's how great is our God, He also send his only son to died for all our sin and make us free, no one can give his son to died for some one sin but our God is so great. Thank you God for every thing you do for me and my family. God is great all the time, all the time god is great. Amen!

    Thanks for the site, you use the word Karma - a very buddhist term which draws from the fact that you need to do good to be saved. How great is our God is when God has done everything that needs to be done to save us. All we need is to believe. We do good because we are saved. Hope you will replace the word karma.

    Our god is greator that all our sin' for he has for given us for much more than we could ever for give our friends who by thoughtless acts or words do to us do to us. Our god is so good. When we were lost we did not seek him as we some times say. He sent his spirit through friends neighbors. Messages heard on radio. Or a discarded tract. We recievet by what ever means it and by become aware that we are in danger because of our sin. He saves us when we trust jesus as our savior. What a glorious way you have of puttng this truth to music I appreciate so very much your singing but the sticking to the message of the gospel in much of the music you sing. Many of the singers get caught up in the beat and melode that the message gets garbled I appreciate it when an artest such as your self gets it right. Thank you.
