How Great is Our God was released back in 2004, and is still topping CCLI charts almost 11 years later. As arguably one of Chris Tomlin’s most popular songs, it’s no surprise that How Great is Our God has won many accolades, including both Song of the Year, and Worship Song of the Year at the 2006 Dove Awards. How Great is Our God has appeared on numerous compilation albums, and has been translated into countless languages.
According to Tomlin, the song came out of meditating on Psalm 104, and simply attempting to describe the greatness of our God. Interestingly, the bridge wasn’t added until much later when Tomlin was working with his producer, Ed Cash. Learn more about How Great is Our God by checking out the full song story below:
