"O Great God" by Sovereign Grace Music

MAY SONG OF THE MONTH

We will be singing this song at FBCN all month long. Can’t wait to hear all our voices sing it together. It is our hope and prayer that God would use this song to remind us of the fact that because of the work of Christ we are no longer slaves to sin and, as David Rimestad reminded us on Sunday, we are free to enjoy fighting and killing our sin. This song also allows us to cry out to God for victory over sin. If sin will be truely put to death in our lives, it will be by his power.

O great God of highest heaven 
Occupy my lowly heart 
Own it all and reign supreme 
Conquer every rebel power 
Let no vice or sin remain 
That resists Your holy war 
You have loved and purchased me 
Make me Yours forevermore 

I was blinded by my sin 
Had no ears to hear Your voice 
Did not know Your love within 
Had no taste for heaven’s joys 
Then Your Spirit gave me life 
Opened up Your Word to me 
Through the gospel of Your Son 
Gave me endless hope and peace 

Help me now to live a life 
That’s dependent on Your grace 
Keep my heart and guard my soul 
From the evils that I face 
You are worthy to be praised 
With my every thought and deed 
O great God of highest heaven 
Glorify Your Name through me
