Lyrics & Scripture

Verse 1

Who breaks the power of sin and darkness

Whose love is mighty and so much stronger

The King of Glory the King above all kings

 

Verse 2

Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder

And leaves us breathless in awe and wonder

The King of Glory the King above all kings

 

Chorus

 

This is amazing grace

This is unfailing love

That You would take my place

That You would bear my cross

You laid down Your life

That I would be set free

Oh Jesus I sing for all that You’ve done for me

 

Verse 3

Who brings our chaos back into order

Who makes the orphan a son and daughter

The King of Glory the King of Glory

 

Verse 4

Who rules the nations with truth and justice

Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance

The King of Glory the King above all kings

 

(Bridge)

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

Worthy is the King who conquered the grave

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

Worthy is the King who conquered the grave

(Repeat)

 

Chorus

Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil,

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory,

Forever. Amen.

Whenever the day came for Elkanah to sacrifice, he would give portions of the meat to his wife Peninnah and to all her sons and daughters. But to Hannah he gave a double portion because he loved her, and the Lord had closed her womb. Because the Lord had closed Hannah’s womb, her rival kept provoking her in order to irritate her. This went on year after year. Whenever Hannah went up to the house of the Lord, her rival provoked her till she wept and would not eat. Her husband Elkanah would say to her, “Hannah, why are you weeping? Why don’t you eat? Why are you downhearted? Don’t I mean more to you than ten sons?”

Once when they had finished eating and drinking in Shiloh, Hannah stood up. Now Eli the priest was sitting on his chair by the doorpost of the Lord’s house. 10 In her deep anguish Hannah prayed to the Lord, weeping bitterly. 11 And she made a vow, saying, “Lord Almighty, if you will only look on your servant’s misery and remember me, and not forget your servant but give her a son, then I will give him to the Lord for all the days of his life, and no razor will ever be used on his head.”

12 As she kept on praying to the Lord, Eli observed her mouth. 13 Hannah was praying in her heart, and her lips were moving but her voice was not heard. Eli thought she was drunk 14 and said to her, “How long are you going to stay drunk? Put away your wine.”

15 “Not so, my lord,” Hannah replied, “I am a woman who is deeply troubled. I have not been drinking wine or beer; I was pouring out my soul to the Lord. 16 Do not take your servant for a wicked woman; I have been praying here out of my great anguish and grief.”

17 Eli answered, “Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him.”

18 She said, “May your servant find favor in your eyes.” Then she went her way and ate something, and her face was no longer downcast.

19 Early the next morning they arose and worshiped before the Lord and then went back to their home at Ramah. Elkanah made love to his wife Hannah, and the Lord remembered her. 20 So in the course of time Hannah became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She named him Samuel,[a] saying, “Because I asked the Lord for him.”

VERSE 1

Water you turned into wine

Opened the eyes of the blind

There’s no one like you

None like you

VERSE 2

Into the darkness you shine

Out of the ashes we rise

There’s no one like you

None like you

CHORUS 1

Our God is greater

Our God is stronger

God you are higher than any other

Our God is healer

Awesome in power

Our God our God

VERSE 2 CHORUS 1 (2x)

BRIDGE

And if our God is for us

Then who could ever stop us

And if our God is with us

Then what could stand against

And if our God is for us

Then who could ever stop us

And if our God is with us

Then what could stand against

Then what could stand against
