O Great God – A Prayer Song

Jan 13, 2017 — Leave a comment

I love listening and singing music from Bob Kauflin & Sovereign Grace Music. They have been writing God-exalting songs for over 30 years that the church enjoys singing.

Bob Kauflin is the director of Sovereign Grace Music and has been writing music for most of his life. He spent several years touring with the group GLAD. He has also written several books entitled Worship Matters & True Worshippers.

One particular song that Bob has written is entitled “O Great God”. It is a beautiful ballad of worship to God. This song was birthed from the prayer “Regeneration”. The words to this prayer go like this:

Occupy the throne of my heart, take full possession and reign supreme,
lay low every rebel lust, let no vile passion resist they holy war;
manifest thy mighty power, and make me thine for ever.
Thou art worthy to be praised with my every breath,
loved with my every faculty of soul served with my every act of life.

Bob wanted to set this prayer to music because of how often he asked God to do whatever he needed to do to make him love and glorify God more.

This is a great song for all of us to sing that would help remind us to love and glorify HIM more. Take a look at the words and then click on the link at the bottom to watch and listen to the song. I am excited to introduce this to my church!

O great God of highest heaven
Occupy my lowly heart
Own it all and reign supreme
Conquer every rebel power
Let no vice or sin remain
That resists Your holy war
You have loved and purchased me
Make me Yours forevermore

I was blinded by my sin
Had no ears to hear Your voice
Did not know Your love within
Had no taste for heaven’s joys
Then Your Spirit gave me life
Opened up Your Word to me
Through the gospel of Your Son
Gave me endless hope and peace

Help me now to live a life
That’s dependent on Your grace
Keep my heart and guard my soul
From the evils that I face
You are worthy to be praised
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me

Lord, let this be my prayer – that I would love and glorify You more and more each day!
