ONE VOICE: Our God

The Song:
One thing I try to do as your worship pastor is to make sure we know most of the songs that are commonly sung in the Church today.  This is a hugely important part of making this “one voice” unity thing reach beyond the walls of our church's building.  When we sing a song like “How Great Is Our God” (currently the most commonly sung worship song according to CCLI who provides licensing services to churches like us) we can know that we are lifting our voices in a kind of unison with many other believers across the nation and globe.

Our God—written by Chris Tomlin, Jesse Reeves, Jonas Myrin, and Matt Redman—has been the fastest rising worship song I’ve ever seen! Now it’s been about a year since it came out on radio, and it is the 3rd most commonly sung worship song in America according to CCLI.  I can see why…it is POWERFUL in both lyric and music! We love songs that let us powerfully proclaim what we believe about God: “Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, how great Thou art…”; “Savior, He can move the mountains, my God is mighty to save!”; “Here I am to worship…Here I am to say that You’re my God”; “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come…” And now: “Our God is greater…stronger…higher…And if our God for us, then who could ever stop us?”  As we proclaim it, I hope you have a greater sense of unity knowing that we’re joining our song with so many other believers!
