“Our God” – Chorus: But if Our God Is Greater, Who Is Us?

I love this song.  However, I only love it when the words “Us” and “Our” refer to the whole human race.  When I think that someone might be singing it while thinking that “Us” and “Our” refer only to a particular group of human beings (e.g. a religious group, an ethnic group, the group singing it, or any other subset of humanity), it makes me sad.

The God of all humanity is greater, and He will take us all to heaven because of His great love (Everyone Is Going to Heaven).  Therefore, let us all live before Him in humble gratitude and reverent awe because of His righteous judgments (Judgment Is Upon Us).


Common refrains of this chorus:

  • “Water You turned into wine, opened the eyes of the blind.”
  • “There’s no one like you, none like You.”
  • “Our God is healer, awesome in power.”
