lyrics

When God created you He saw every decision you've made
And will make, and are making, He heard every little thing you would say
He made you knowing all the things you would do
So that his power would be even more apparent through you
Divinely, He decidedly defined you
He dedicatedly determined and designed you
And discerned your destiny and desire to be by you
He deeply loves you deliberately and not because of what you do

But because of the overwhelming grace that He distributes to us
We don't deserve anything but eternal judgment more furious
Than anything we can imagine, so to The Lord we should laud
For we were made with the purpose to express glory to God
But we so wrongly think that because He loves us so dearly
That He needs us, and of this we should be leery
God doesn't need us He's the creator, and we’re the created
God's the only one who deserves honor that's something He clearly stated

What is God without us, He is God still the same
What is God without us, He's still worthy of all fame
But what are we without God, we’re nothing, we don't exist
So about this next point there's something that I must insist
Contrary to what most believe, we can't give God any glory
He alone has greatness, whether we accept it is the story
God is wholly deserving of all loving praise and worship
And deserves us totally accepting our surrender to his holy lordship

When He comes back He'll be coming with a sword
When He comes back He'll proclaim that He is lord
Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess
That Jesus is the King and that all of us are less
Sing hallelujah, sing praises to his name
He's the only one who has the power to heal the lame
He's the only being who can give you salvation
Father, son, and Holy Spirit, He's God three in one

Glory laud an honor
To the redeemer king
To whom the lips of children
Made sweet hosannas ring

Thou art the king of Israel, thou David's royal son
Who in The Lord's name comest, the king and blessed one
The company of angels, are praising thee on high
And mortal men an all things, created make reply
The people of the Hebrews, with palms before thee went
Our prayer and praise and anthems, before thee we present
To thee before thy passion, they sang their hymns of praise
To thee now high exalted, our melody we raise

Thou didst accept their praises
Accept the prayers we bring
Who in all good delightest
Thou good and gracious King
