Behold Our God




Here's a video of a great song we've been singing a lot in church recently. This video version has an orchestra and everything (which, needless to say, is not quite how we accompany it in Leeds). 'Behold Our God' was originally recorded on the Sovereign Grace album 'Risen', which is full of good songs proclaiming solid biblical truth, and as the title suggests, particularly focused on the Resurrection.

VERSE 1
Who has held the oceans in His hand
Who has numbered every grain of sand
Kings and nations tremble at His voice
All creation rises to rejoice

CHORUS
Behold our God seated on His throne
Come let us adore Him
Behold our King nothing can compare
Come let us adore Him!

VERSE 2
Who has given counsel to the Lord
Who can question any of His Words
Who can teach the One who knows all things
Who can fathom all His wondrous deeds

VERSE 3
Who has felt the nails upon His hands
Bearing all the guilt of sinful man
God eternal humbled to the grave
Jesus, Savior risen now to reign!

TAG
Men: You will reign forever!
Women: Let Your glory fill the earth
