Song of the Week God and God Alone by Chris Tomlin

This new song from Chris Tomlin is from the new Passion album Salvation’s Tide is Rising. Watch him perform it at the 2016 Passion Conference.

One Church, one Faith, one anthem raised
God and God alone
One cross, one grace, one name that saves us all
All praise to You belongs
All praise to You belongs

We lift You higher, higher, God and God alone
Your name be louder, louder than any other song
You are forever seated on Your throne
You are forever God and God alone

Who else can wash our sin away?
God and God aloneGod and God Alone
Who else can raise us from the grave?
All praise to You belongs
Jesus, all praise to You belongs

We lift You higher, higher, God and God alone
Your name be louder, louder than any other song
You are forever seated on Your throne
You are forever God and God alone

And what could separate us from this amazing love?
What could say it’s greater than our God?
Every knee will bow down oh
And what could separate us from this amazing love?
What could say it’s greater than our God?
Every knee will bow down, every knee will bow down

We lift You higher, higher, God and God alone
Your name be louder, louder than any other song
You are forever seated on Your throne
You are forever God and God alone

And what could separate us from this amazing love?
What could say it’s greater than our God?
Every knee will bow down oh
And what could separate us from this amazing love?
What could say it’s greater than our God?
Every knee will bow down, every knee will bow down
