  • When He rolls up His sleeves
    He ain't just putting on the ritz
    (Our God is an awesome God)

    There's thunder in His footsteps
    And lightning in His fists
    (Our God is an awesome God)

    And the Lord wasn't joking
    When He kicked 'em out of Eden
    It wasn't for no reason
    That He shed His blood
    His return is very close
    And so you better be believing that
    Our God is an awesome God

    Our God is an awesome God
    He reigns from heaven above
    With wisdom, power, and love
    Our God is an awesome God

    Our God is an awesome God
    He reigns from heaven above
    With wisdom, power, and love
    Our God is an awesome God

    And when the sky was starless
    In the void of the night
    (Our God is an awesome God)

    He spoke into the darkness
    And created the light
    (Our God is an awesome God)

    Judgment and wrath He poured out on the Sodom
    Mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
    I hope that you have not
    Too quickly forgotten that
    Our God is an awesome God

    Our God is an awesome God
    He reigns from heaven above
    With wisdom, power, and love
    Our God is an awesome God

    Our God is an awesome God
    He reigns from heaven above
    With wisdom, power, and love
    Our God is an awesome God

    Our God is an awesome God
    He reigns from heaven above
    With wisdom, power, and love
    Our God is an awesome God

    Our God is an awesome God
    He reigns from heaven above
    With wisdom, power, and love
    Our God is an awesome God

    Our God is an awesome God (Our God is an awesome God)
    He reigns from heaven above (He reigns from heaven above)
    With wisdom, power, and love (With wisdom, power, and love)
    Our God is an awesome God

  • Rick W from UsaI was one of those kids at the Christ in Youth conference at what was then Loretto Heights College in Denver, Colorado. Rich led a group that provided the music for the entire multi-day conference. I remember how he told us he had written this song on the way to the conference, and I remember seeing him and the other singers grouped around a microphone, holding between them a small piece of paper on which he had written the lyrics and chords, and I remember the profound emotion of hearing that chorus as the ensemble sang it, and then as 500+ high schoolers joined in. It was a special, amazing, awesome moment!
