Let Your majesty
Speak peace to me
And chase my fears away
To my heart I preach

And the power of Your name
I’ll stand in awe of You alone

God, let hope arise
And faith become the fortress of my heart
I will lift my eyes
And see You as the awesome God You are
Believe You as the awesome God You are

You’re the glory of our brightest days
The comfort of our nights
When the darkest shades are all we see
You’re the Everlasting Light
I’ll stand in awe of You alone

And see You on Your throne so high above
See You watching over me in love
I will worship You and You alone
The awesome God You are
The awesome God You are
