How Great Is Our God

On the rooftop of one of our hotels, we sang it.
At the church that the girls from Rapha went to, we sang it.
At Kid’s Club, we all sang it.

 

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

Name above all names
Worthy of our praise
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

 

Last night, driving home from Orlando with Brad, this song came on his iPod. As we drove and sang, I remembered and tears streamed down my cheeks and a smile grew on my face that I just couldn’t wipe away.

I miss Cambodia. I’m so, so thankful that I was able to go. So thankful for the sights, and the smells, and the sounds. Oh, those beautiful sounds. Khmer men, women, and children singing. Us singing on the rooftop, the sounds of the town below, the Buddhist temple across from our corner. Us singing at the front of the church, looking at all those beautiful faces, smiling back at us, sitting perched on those brightly colored plastic dollar store chairs. The two older boys at Kid’s Club singing with Derek, strumming on the guitar and leading right there, sitting on the table outside of Theara’s house.

 

How great, how great is our God.
