BEHOLD OUR GOD

  Lyrics

Verse 1
Who has held the oceans in his hands
Who has numbered every grain of sand
Kings and nations tremble at his voice
All creation rises to rejoice

Chorus
Behold our God seated on his throne
Come let us adore him
Behold our King, nothing can compare
Come let us adore him

Verse 2
Who has given counsel to the Lord
Who can question any of his words
Who can teach the one who knows all things
Who can fathom all his wondrous deeds

Verse 3
Who has felt the nails upon his hand
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal, humbled to the grave
Jesus, Saviour, risen now to reign

Bridge
You will reign forever
(Let your glory fill the earth)
(REPEAT)

  Sample Introduction

Isaiah 40 paints a picture of our incomparable God:

“Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance? Who can fathom the Spirit of the Lord, or instruct the Lord as his counsellor? Whom did the Lord consult to enlighten him, and who taught him the right way? Who was it that taught him knowledge, or showed him the path of understanding?”

Let us behold and adore him in this song.
