HOW GREAT YOU ARE by Shannon Wexelberg

Listening to this song puts my heart in a posture of humility, as if thousands of images portraying the goodness and faithfulness of God are flashing before me.

Great kings delight to rule over great people. They want to be surrounded by good advisers and obedient subjects. But God, being the greatest and highest of all, King of kings and Lord of lords, finds His greatest delight in reigning over us, faithless, disobedient and very unruly people. How do you explain that? He gets nothing in return, as there is nothing, absolutely nothing we can give and do to add to His lordship. It is a great mystery to me WHY ON EARTH WOULD A GREAT AND MIGHTY GOD CHOOSE TO REIGN OVER A FOOLISH WRETCH LIKE US…LIKE YOU…LIKE ME…

The only rightful response before this gracious and merciful God is to worship Him as He deserves; to acknowledge His sovereignty and majesty.Listening to this old track renews my faith in my God and my perspective in the Lord whom I worship. He is so high, yet so humble; so far, yet not distant. It is my prayer that my heart would grow to yearn for more of Him and that my soul will not find its rest until I come face to face with my Savior. And when that time comes, at His feet  will I bow and sing and proclaim, “HOW GREAT YOU ARE!”

“You are deserving of all the praises, Lord

My heart is yearning to be in Your presence once more

Deep inside my heart is burning, I want to give you more

And You’re the only one that I adore

HOW GREAT YOU ARE, HOW GREAT YOU ARE

YOU ARE THE MIGHTY KING AND YOU COME TO REIGN IN ME

HOW GREAT YOU ARE, HOW GREAT YOU ARE

I GIVE YOU ALL THE PRAISES OF MY HEART.”
