You are God and we are not (with chords) PDF

Praise to the God who often seems silent
Praise to the God whose plan isn’t clear
Praise to the God whose story sounds violent
Praise to the God both distant and near

Praise to the God who dwells in cathedrals
Praise to the God who lives in the slum
Praise to the God who’s given us free will
Praise to the God whose will will be done

You are God, and we are not
You are God, and we are not

Praise to the God whose world is in chaos
Praise to the God whose peace is secure
Praise to the God who often delays us
Praise to the God whose motives are pure

Praise to the God who can’t be conscripted
Praise to the God who won’t always make sense
Praise to the God who won’t be constricted
Praise to the God who will cause offence

You are God, and we are not
You are God, and we are not

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
To the God who can’t be tamed

Praise to the God who rations his healing
Praise to the God setting some of us free
Praise to the God who is stopping and kneeling
Praise to the God who is weeping with me

Praise to the God who gives cancer permission
Praise to the God who gives all of himself
Praise to the God who surrendered position
Praise to the God who puts love before health

You are God, and we are not
You are God, and we are not

Praise to the God whose nature is justice
Praise to the God who will have his say
Praise to the God who’s sitting in judgment
Praise to the God who lets some slip away

Praise to the God who loves Trump and Theresa
Praise to the God who hates lying and greed
Praise to the God who is taking a knee now
Praise to the God who is taking the lead

You are God, and we are not
You are God, and we are not

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
To the God who can’t be tamed

You are God, and we are not
You are God, and we are not

Praise to the God who suffers in mourning
Praise to the God who reigns without end
Praise to the God who moves without warning
Praise to the God I can’t comprehend

Praise to the God who often is hiding
Praise to the God who is seeking the lost
Praise to the God who swallowed his pride and
Praise to the God who would hang on a cross

Praise to the God whose kingdom is coming
Praise to the God who’s biding his time
Praise to the God whose welcome comes running
Praise to the God with patience sublime

Praise to the God who is holding the tension
Praise to the God of both autumn and spring
Praise to the God of this glorious invention
Praise to the God who renews the whole thing
