Young and old near and far
There's a place for every heart
To join in Your song, join in Your song
Every nation tribe and tongue
Come together join as one
Give glory to God, give glory to God
We are the people of God
We'll sing Your song here on the earth

Great is Your name
And great will be Your song
Great is Your name
And great will be Your song
We lift up our hands and pray
We lift up our hands and pray
For holy is Your name
