  • How great is our God
    Sing with me, how great is our God
    All will see how great is our God
    How great is our God
    Sing with me, how great is our God
    All will see, how great, how great, is our God
    Name above all names
    Worthy of all praise
    And my heart will sing how great is our God
    Name above all names
    Worthy of all praise
    And my heart will sing how great is our God
    How great is our God
    Sing with me, how great is our God
    All will see how great is our God
    How great, is our God
    Sing with me, how great is our God
    All will see, how great, how great, how great, how great, how great, how great, is our God

    The first, is that God is better than the world's best thing
    God is better than the best thing that the world has to offer

    Magnify, magnify, lift it on high
    Spit it Spotify to qualify a spot on His side
    I cannot modify or ratify, my momma made me apple pies
    Lullabies and alibis
    The book don't end with Malachi
    Devil will win employee of the month by the dozen
    'Til one score and three years from the third when he doesn't
    My village raised 'em a child, come through the crib and it's bustin'
    You meet anyone from my city, they gon' say that we cousins
    Shabach Barak, edify
    Electrify the enemy like Hedwig 'til he petrefied
    Any petty Peter Petigrew could get the pesticide
    79th, 79th, I don't believe in science
    I believe in signs
    Don't believe in signing, I see dollar signs
    Color white collar crime
    Good God, the gift of freedom
    Hosena Santa invoked and woke up slaves from south Hampton to Chatham Manor
    My dream girl's behind me, feel like I'm James Early
    The type of worship make Jesus come back a day early
    With the faith of a pumpkin-seed-sized mustard seed
    Here, for I will speak noble things as they trusted me
    Only righteous, I might just shrug at the skullduggery
    I couldn't stand to see another rapper lose custody
    Exalt, Exalt, glorify
    Descend upon the earth with swords and fortify the borders where your shoulders lies
    I used to hide from God
    Ducked down in the slums like "shhh"

    I was lost in the jungle like Simba after the death of Mufasa
    No hog, no meerkat, hakuna matata by day
    But I spent my night time fighting tears back
    I prayed and prayed and left messages but never got no hear back
    Or so it seemed
    A mustard seed was all I needed to sow a dream
    I build the ark, gently, gently, rowed my boat down Noah's stream
    Sometimes the path I took to reach my petty goals was so extreme
    I was so far down in the mud couldn't even let my light shine
    But she was always there when I needed to phone a friend or use a life line
    From a lofty height to wage war
    On the poltergeist with the exalt of Christ
    Spark the dark with the pulse of light
    Strike a corpse with a pulse of life
    I spit on the Tidal of tidal waves
    I spit on the Apple and kill a worm
    A fire in Cali will swallow a valley for every African village burned
    Jay Elect would've never made it
    O' son of man, O' son of man
    Who was the angel in Revelations with the foot on water and the foot on land
    Who was the angel that rode a Harley from the project to the house of Parliament
    And opened the book in the Devil's chamber and put the true name of the Lord in it
    Old Jerusalem, New Jerusalem
    Cuff lights these beats with a ball of fire
    They poisoned the scripture and gave us the pictures of false messiahs
    It was all a lie
    Mystery babylon, tumbling down
    Satan's establishment crumbling down
    This is the year that I come for the crown
    Bury my enemies under the ground Writer/s: CARTER LANG, CHANCELOR BENNETT, CHRIS TOMLIN, EDMOND CASH, JASON REEVES, NATE NATHAN FOX, PETER COTTONTALE
