God Of This City…

God Of This City…

“Greater things have yet to come, greater things are still to be done in this city”  

I’ve sung those words and listened to that song on the radio countless times.  It’s a powerful song, no doubt.  But today, this is a brand new song to me.   Today, I watched as a group of kids from Guatemala city learned to sing this song in English.  They’ll perform it for their schoolmates later this week.

 These kids from a part of the world where 1 in 4 of them are malnourished.   Where Mamas sell their babies because they cannot afford to feed them, or the rest of their family for that matter.  Where sex trafficking is big business.  Where gangs terrorize communities.  Where, in many households, fathers are either absent, or such a negative force, it would be better if they were.

 So, when these kids from this city sing these words, it’s enough to make you weep.  Or smile.  Or both.

You’re the God of this city.

You’re the King of these people.

You’re the Lord of this Nation.

You Are.

You’re the light of this darkness.

You’re the hope of the hopeless.

You’re the peace to the restless.

You are.

There is no one like our God

There is no one like our God

Greater things have yet to come,

greater things are still to be done

in this city.

There is no one like our God

There is no one like our God
