God of this City

This week in our middle school group we're talking about the song, God of this City. Last summer at camp our group was blessed to have Chris Tomlin as our worship leader. He shared the story about how this song came to pass, how it was born in a dark place, and how it lives on as an anthem for us who want to shine in that same darkness. The words are powerful. I pray that our students will know what it means to have this spirit of expectation, that God would do something so GREAT in their cities and in their hearts.

Jesus said, "I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me...then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me." John 17:20-23

God of This City
By Bluetree
Performed by Chris Tomlin

Verse 1
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 are

Bridge
For there is no-one like our God
There is no-one like our God

Chorus 1
Greater things have yet to come
Greater things are still to be done
In this city
Greater things have yet to come
And greater things have still to be done here

Verse 2
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 our weakness
You’re the love to the broken
You’re the joy in the sadness
You are

Bridge
For there is no-one like our God
There is no-one like our God

Chorus 2
Greater things have yet to come
Greater things are still to be done
In this city
Greater things have yet to come
Greater things are still to be done
In this city
Greater things have yet to come
Greater things are still to be done
In this city
Greater things have yet to come
And greater things have still to be done here
