How Great is Our God – World Edition

Please add this worship song to your online church sermon, morning devotion, or evening quiet time.
Today’s song is “How Great is Our God” performed by Chris Tomlin

“Praise the Lord, my soul.  Lord my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty.  The Lord wraps Himself in light as with a garment; He stretches out the heavens like a tent and lays the beams of His upper chambers on their waters.  He makes the clouds His chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.  He makes winds His messengers, flames of fire His servants.  He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.  You covered it with the watery depths as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.  But at Your rebuke the waters fled, at the sound of Your thunder they took to flight; they flowed over the mountains, they went down into the valleys, to the place You assigned for them.  You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth.  He makes springs pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains.  They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst.  The birds of the sky nest by the waters; they sing among the branches.  He waters the mountains from His upper chambers; the land is satisfied by the fruit of His work.  He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for people to cultivate—bringing forth food from the earth: wine that gladdens human hearts, oil to make their faces shine, and bread that sustains their hearts.  The trees of the Lord are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon that He planted.  There the birds make their nests; the stork has its home in the junipers.  The high mountains belong to the wild goats; the crags are a refuge for the hyrax.  He made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down.  You bring darkness, it becomes night, and all the beasts of the forest prowl.  The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God.  The sun rises, and they steal away; they return and lie down in their dens.  Then people go out to their work, to their labor until evening.  How many are Your works, Lord!  In wisdom You made them all; the earth is full of Your creatures.  There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number—living things both large and small.  There the ships go to and fro, and Leviathan, which you formed to frolic there.  All creatures look to You to give them their food at the proper time.  When You give it to them, they gather it up; when You open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.  When You hide your face, they are terrified; when You take away their breath, they die and return to the dust.  When You send Your Spirit, they are created, and You renew the face of the ground.  May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in His works—He who looks at the earth, and it trembles, who touches the mountains, and they smoke.  I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.  May my meditation be pleasing to Him, as I rejoice in the Lord.  But may sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more.  Praise the Lord, my soul.  Praise the Lord.”
Psalm 104 (NIV)

Today’s song is How Great is Our God” World Edition,” performed by Chris Tomlin.  I will keep my words few today and let the scripture, melody, visuals, and words speak for themselves.

How thrilling it is to see people of every tribe, tongue, and nation praise our God for His great splendour and majesty.  How thrilling to see the young, old, rich, poor from Nations of the West, the East, the North and the South unhinged, unashamed to sing of the greatness of our God.  How thrilling to realize that each child of God seen in this video has their own personal testimony of how God found, rescued, redeemed, and restored their lives by the blood of Jesus.

The greatest story ever told is that we serve a God who created all things. Our God created each of us, and although we fell in sin, He was willing to sacrifice Himself as the spotless Lamb of God on our behalf to pay for a sin that we could not pay for so that we could be restored to our creator.  Yes, our Creator loves us so much that He desires a personal relationship with each of us.  Our God is so great that although each of us falls short of the glory of God, our lives, problems, and concerns matter enough to our God that every day (if we watch), we see the goodness of God.  How magnificent to watch Him weave together our broken, tangled, tattered lives to form a perfect tapestry for our good and His Kingdom’s sake.

Words are inadequate to express just how Great is Our God.
Join together with the world’s Nations today to give praise, glory, and honour, for truly, How Great is our God!

To Be Continued….

“Salvation to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” And all the angels stood around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. And they fell facedown before the throne and worshiped God, saying, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God forever and ever! Amen.”
Rev 7: 9-12 (NIV)

How Great is our God

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

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

Name above all names (how great is our God, sing with me)
Worthy of our praise (how great is our God, and all will see)
My heart will sing
How great is our God

You’re the name above all names (how great is our God, sing with me)
You are worthy of our praise (how great is our God, and all will see)
And 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

May we grow together in the love of Christ to reflect upon the mercies and blessings upon our lives, to feel the presence of God’s living Holy Spirit through worship to sing, pray, laugh, dance, cry, but mostly to praise our Lord and Father as we were indeed created2praise.
