lyrics

VERSE 1:
In the chaos of fire and wind, I could never hear Your voice,
As high as the mountains ascend, to depths beneath the soil—
You laid the foundations of Earth, Creator of the world,
From You there is death and rebirth, commanded at Your Word.

CHORUS 1:
Holy, holy, Lord, most high how majestic is Your Name in all the earth.
Holy, holy, Lord, our God, how majestic is Your Name in all the earth.

VERSE 2:
Maker of valley and sky, protector and savior who reigns.
Shepherd of all that is right, creation sings Your praise.
When thunder and lightning descend, You give shelter from the storm.
The heavens and earth will declare, the greatness of You, Lord.

CHORUS 2:
Holy, holy, Lord, our God, the nations will declare the Lord is One.
Holy, holy, Lord, our God, the nations will declare the Lord is One.
Hear O Israel! Our God, Your nation will declare the Lord is One.
Hear O Israel! Our God, Your nation will declare the Lord is One.

VERSE 3:
If I wandered this land all alone, would You find me in my need?
If the pains of the flesh I can’t bear, would You ever send relief?
If I cry from the highest of hills, would You listen to my prayers?
Would You speak to the wounds of my soul? In the silence are You near?

OUTRO:
Oh (REPEAT X4)
