Holy Is The Lord

Songfacts®:

  • Chris Tomlin told About.com: "This song was inspired by the picture of worship around the throne of God in Isaiah 6. The heavenly creatures sounding this anthem back and forth to one another…

    Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty
    The whole earth is full of his glory

    Louie Giglio helped complete the thought with another picture from Nehemiah, where the people joined in a mass assembly… A great example of corporate worship. The Bible says they raised their hands to God at the hearing of his Word, they bowed with their faces to the ground and together made this statement… 'the joy of the Lord is our strength.'"
  • This won the Worship Song of the Year award at the 2007 GMA Dove awards.
