Awesome God (2001) – Michael W Smith


This is the second song to feature from American Christian singer Michael W Smith. You can find more information about Michael W Smith at my post about his version of Agnus Dei.

This song Awesome God and video below demonstrates the power and wonder of community worship. It’s one of the most covered songs in Christian music. I still get goosebumps when I hear it. It was released on Michael’s 16th album called ‘Worship‘ which went double platinum. Remarkably the album was released on September 11th 2001.

According to wikipedia: Awesome God” is a contemporary worship song written by Rich Mullins and first recorded on his 1988 album, Winds of Heaven, Stuff of Earth. It was the first single from the album and rose to the number one spot on Christian radio and subsequently became a popular congregational song. Its title is inspired by a biblical expression (Nehemiah 1:5, Nehemiah 9:32, Psalm 47, Daniel 9:4, etc.), variously translated as “Awesome God”, (JPS, in the old-fashioned meaning “awe-inspiring”), “great” (KJV), among other alternatives.

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from Heaven above
With wisdom power and love
Our God is an awesome God

“The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know.”- Michel Legrand
