How Great the Goodness of Our God


How Great the Goodness of Our God

Music for Choirs, Music for Youth, Submitted Music (2012-present)

Even in our darkest hour when shame within us burns,

when we are afraid for mistakes we’ve made,

every sinner has a place to turn.

Though our mortal fight with sin cannot be won alone,

When the flesh is weak we can humble seek

Grace from One with power to atone

O how great the goodness of our God,

The wisdom which conceived the beauty of His plan

 

O how great the goodness of our God, the mercy which has sent

A Savior unto man

 

As we face the painful truth that death will come to all,

Stricken in our grief, we can seek relief

Through the One who overcame the fall.

Though we ache when those we love have sighed their final breath,

Through our living Lord vict’ry is assured,

Granting all deliverance from death

 

O how great our debt to Him!

O how great the goodness of our God!
