The Lord Jesus had given me a tune to write the day before this, so in the morning I prayed and asked the Lord if he had words for the tune. I acknowledged before God that I could not do this. This tune would have words only if he gave them to me. Then, I heard in my mind the song “How Great Thou Art,” singing, “Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, how great Thou art…”
I knew then that this song was to be about the greatness of God. Then he led me to these passages of scripture and gave me the words. How great is his love, his faithfulness, his many wondrous deeds and miracles, his purposes for mankind, his compassions, his covenant of love with those who love him, his redemptive power in his saving grace toward humankind, the promise of his soon return, and our hope of eternity with him in heaven.
“For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds” (Ps. 57:10ESV).
“I will sing of the steadfast love of the LORD, forever; with my mouth I will make known your faithfulness to all generations” (Ps. 89:1ESV).
“Great are your purposes and mighty are your deeds. Your eyes are open to the ways of all mankind; you reward each person according to their conduct and as their deeds deserve” (Jer. 32:19NIV).
Great is The Lord!
