about

This song came about as I reflected on the popularity of Chris Tomlin’s “How Great Is Our God.” I wanted to write a similar song that focused on God’s greatness, but especially as He’s revealed Himself to us in Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:6 says that God “has shone in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” Paul preached the “unsearchable riches of Christ” (Ephesians 2:7) and spoke of the “immeasurable riches of His grace…in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 3:8). Even in eternity, we will never exhaust the praises of the glorious Christ, who is the image of the invisible God and the only Savior. — Bob

lyrics

VERSE 1
The radiance of the Father
Before the dawn of time
You spoke and all creation came to be
The molecules and planets
Reveal Your great design
And every one was made so we could see
So we could see

CHORUS
You are the glorious Christ
The greatest of all delights
Your power is unequaled
Your love beyond all heights
No greater sacrifice
Than when You laid down Your life
We join the song of angels
Who praise You day and night
Glorious Christ

VERSE 2
You left the air of heaven
To breathe the dust of earth
And dwell among the outcast and the poor
You came to be forsaken
And died to take our curse
So You could be our joy forevermore
Forevermore

BRIDGE
You’re seated now in heaven
Enthroned at God’s right hand
You’ve shattered death and freed us
From our fears
And though we cannot see You
You’re coming back again
And all will be made right when You appear
And all will be made right when You appear
