Great Is The Lord!

Discussion in 'Fellowship Time' started by SueJLove, Jun 12, 2013.

  1. The Lord Jesus had given me a tune to write yesterday or the day before, so this morning I prayed and asked the Lord if he had words for the tune. I acknowledged before God that I could not do this. This tune would have words only if he gave them to me. Then, I heard in my mind the song “How Great Thou Art,” singing, “Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, how great Thou art…”

    I knew then that this song was to be about the greatness of God, and then he led me to these passages of scripture and gave me the words. How great is his love, his faithfulness, his many wondrous deeds and miracles, his purposes for mankind, his compassions, his covenant of love with those who love him, his redemptive power in his saving grace toward humankind, the promise of his soon return, and our hope of eternity with him in heaven.

    Great is The Lord! / An Original Work / June 12, 2013

    Based off Various Scriptures – Ps. 57:10; 89:1; 145:3; Jer. 32:19;
    La. 3:22-24; Da. 9:4; Lu. 21:27; Ep. 1:19; Tit. 2:13; 1 Jn. 3:1 (NIV ’84)

    Great is the Lord!
    He has done wondrous things.
    Great is His love
    Reaching up to the heav’ns.
    His faithfulness reaches
    Up to the skies.
    Of His great love,
    I will sing evermore.

    Great is the Lord
    And most worthy of praise!
    Truly His greatness
    No one comprehends.
    Great are His purposes;
    Mighty His deeds.
    His eyes are open
    To the ways of man.

    Great is the Lord!
    His compassions ne’er fail.
    Great is His faithfulness.
    I’ll wait for Him.
    He keeps His covenant
    Of His great love
    With all who love Him
    And do what He says.

    Great is the Lord!
    He is coming in pow’r.
    His saints will wait for Him;
    Their hope secure.
    How great His love
    He has lavished on us,
    That we should be called
    The children of God.

  2. Similarly, based on Psalm 48:

    'Great is the Lord,
    And greatly to be praised,
    In the city of our God,
    In the mountain of His holiness,
    Beautiful for situation
    The joy of the whole earth
    Is mount Zion on the sides of the north,
    The city of the great king.'
