How Great You Are

How great is the Lord, how deserving of praise. – Psalm 48:1

This Sunday we will be introducing a new song to our Sunday gathering entitled How Great You Are, inspired by How Great Thou Art by Stuart Hine, with music and words by Joel Sczebel and Pat Sczebel. It is featured on the new Sovereign Grace Music album From Age to Age. Pat Sczebel, who retuned the hymn had this to say about the song:

The hymn “How Great Thou Art” was the inspiration for this song. Because the original lyrics are still under copyright, we worked together to write new lyrics while keeping the same concepts as the original verses. The chorus is meant to be a response to the glory of God on display as seen in creation, redemption, and the second coming of Christ. In response to those realities, we must sing to God, “How great You are!”

Here are the lyrics to the song:

Our God is great
The Father of creation
His splendor fills the earth
The lightning crash
The thunder sings His praises
The galaxies can’t help but shout His worth

My soul must sing to You an offering
How great You are
My soul must sing, oh, let the heavens ring
How great You are
Oh, how great You are

The Word made flesh
God’s promise to the fallen
He came with pow’r to save
The light of life was crushed for our rebellion
He died our death and rose up from the grave

Our King will come
With trumpet blasts resounding
To claim His blood-washed bride
He’ll rend the skies, descending in His glory
And in an instant faith will turn to sight
