View Lyrics
Great God whose presence we have known,
we bring our thanks to You,
astounded by Your sov'reign pow'r,
amazed at all You do.

What gain is trav'ling half the world
for riches or renown,
when You alone exalt the meek
and bring the haughty down?

Who else but You appoints the time
for judgment to begin,
or pours the cup of bitterness,
the consequence of sin?

Lord, may we never shirk Your call
to challenge what is wrong—
and may the praise of Jacob's God
forever be our song.
