How Great It Is
Old Gospel Song
1. I listened as a man cried out to his gods of earth and stone,
And it broke my heart to see all the tears that he shed alone.
And I knew that it was hopeless and he would not receive
An answer from the gods he served that cannot hear or see.
How great it is to serve a living God
Who knows each breath I take and every step I've trod.
How great it is to serve a God that's real.
Whe sees my every tear and He knows just how I feel.
2. So I fell down on my knees to pray like so many times before,
And I only ask my God to hear my prayer, Lord, just once more.
And it seemed like the heaven just opened up and I could hear Him say,
"Yes, my child, I can hear you, what do you need today?"
