How Great

Verse 1:

G       C2  Em    D     G      C2            D

How great, how great, how great you are

G              C2   Em            D  G 

Above all praise, in every way,

               C2               D

you knew me from the start

C2               D

Each time I run to you, you know I don’t get far

Each time I pray Lord, that’s you in my heart

Each time I call to you, I only need to whisper

Each time I sing, oh my soul sings

 

Chorus:

G                           D                   Em   

How great is our God, breather of stars,

                           D

of each intimate thought: the infinite

G                       D                                         Em                                

How great is his name, who’s hands held no blame,

                                       D

but they took hold of my shame

                                     G  C2  Em  D     G  C2  D

He said just be who you are

 

Verse 2:

G       C2  Em     D    G      C2            D

How great, how great, how great you are

G                 C2    Em                    D   G

Above every name, love meant to stay,

           C2              D

given free, sacred heart

C2               D

Each time I run to you, it doesn’t matter that I’m so slow

Each time I pray Lord, I see how little I know

Each time I call to you, a whisper seems too loud

Each time I sing, I think I see how

 

<Chorus>

 

Bridge:

G                                      Em               C2

If we could just be who we are, who we are

                            D

We could set this world alight

G                                       Em   

If we could just be who we are,

                                         C2

really who we were made to be

                            D

We could set this world on fire

 

G           Em         C2                                   D

Halleluia, halleluia, halleluia, these souls cry out

G           Em           C2                                 D     

Halleluia, halleluia, halleluia, these souls cry out to you
