You’re the God of this city, You’re the King of these people
You’re the Lord of this nation, You are
You’re the Light in this darkness, You’re the Hope to the hopeless
You’re the Peace to the restless, You areThere is no one like our God, there is no one like our GodFor greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in this city
Greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done in this city

Greater things have yet to come, and greater things are still to be done here


“God Of This City” sung by Chris Tomlin, written by Bluetree, found on the newest Passion cd

I live in the Detroit Area.  I love where I live – despite the perception of many including Forbes who claims that I live in the most miserable city in the U.S.  It simply is not true.   Yes, we might have hard economic times right now but this city is full of people who love and who are loved by the Mighty God!  And yes, I believe He has plans for this city. 

Lord – Bless Your Faithful People.   We claim that You have greater things yet to come.  Amen

    Hi Angel – Aren’t they great lyrics? They are Bluetree’s lyrics so you would ultimately have to gain their permission. I always try to give credit as I did in the post above to the the author(s). Kindly, T

    I absolutely love Chris Tomlin’s version of the song, since it’s more intimate. However, the first time i heard it by Bluetree, i fell in love all over again. Their song is a little more rockin’, but they have more powerful lyrics. Tomlin repeats the same verse twice, while Bluetree doesn’t. from the second verse on, it goes like this… (and after this is just repeats the “greater thing have yet to come” stanzas till the end)
    “You’re the Lord of creation,
    the Creator of all things,
    you’re the King above all kings,
    You are.
    You’re the strength in the weakness,
    You’re the love to the broken,
    You’re the joy in the sadness,
    You are.
    For there is no one like our God.
    There is no one like You God.
    Greater things have yet to come
    and greater things are still to be done in this city.
    Where glory shines from hearts alive
    with praise for You and love for You in this city.
    Greater things have yet to come
    and greater things are still to be done in this city.
    Greater things have yet to come
    and greater things are still to be done here.”
