Chris Tomlin: How Great is Our God

History of the Song: 2004 - present

"How Great is Our God" was written and released in 2004 by Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, and Jesse Reeves on the album Arriving.

It quickly hit the top of the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart, and remains an incredibly popular worship song to this day. 

Verse 1

The song starts by highlighting God's splendor, "The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty, let all the earth rejoice". 

The verse continues, saying how God is light and all darkness flees from him and trembles. 

Chorus

And then the chorus kicks in. I personally love the chorus, how it puts all attention on God and his absolute greatness and power.

It hints at how all of the world will, eventually, see the splendor of the Lord: "And all will see how great, how great, is our God."

Verse 2

The second verse continues by highlighting how God was, is, and forever will be the same. "Age to age He stands, and time is in His hands".

He has power and authority over everything: time, the ages, the beginning and the end. 

The verse ends with the Godhead, talking about the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Conclusion

Let's continue to worship and sing out to the Lord.

"How Great is Our God" is a classic, timeless worship song that's going to continue to be sung over and over again, for years to come.
