Song : How Great Is Our God [Chris Tomlin / Passion 05]

Filed under: Christian, DEETEE, Worship — delephant @ 7:22 am

Passion 05This aint a new song. How Great is our GOD i believe has been in existance since 2004, when Chris Tomlin released it in his Arriving CD. But i believe it was made even more popular last year and early this year by both Passion 05 and Hillsong London.

As for me, i’ve heard the song over Christian Radio Channels, but suprisingly have not sung this song in church before. Dunno for what reason, but it just was not done.

How Great is Our God is such a majestic song, a song that proclaims God’s Greatness (as in the title of the song), and the song just builds up to such a cresendo as you sing and worship God with this song. I love the build up of the Chorus … to the Bridge and back to the Chorus. And there’s so many variations that you can do with this song.

In fact of all the releases of this song, i love the acappella section done by Hillsong London – Jesus Is – that was really brillant.

Above all, I love what Passion 05 did. They did a medley of How Great is Our God straight into Then Sings My Soul. It was just so awesome when they did. So if u have not tried that variation, try it out in your church… its such a great medley of songs.

Lyrics to HOW GREAT IS OUR GOD [Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves, Ed Cash]

Verse1
The splendor of the 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

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

Verse2
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
Bridge
Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing
How great is our God
