God of This City

Last weekend we attended Passion:Atlanta. This was the first time I heard the song God of This City, title song on Passions new release. One thing I have always enjoyed is hearing the story behind a song. This song has an amazing story. The band Bluetree from Belfast wrote the song. They were on a mission trip in Thailand in a city that is the number 1 sex tourism destination in the world. It is a very dark place. There are 30,000 female prostitutes over the age of 18 this does not include male prostitutes or females under 18. The band met the owner of a bar, really it was a brothel who invited them to play in his establishment. They were told they could play as long as people were buying drinks. So the group with Bluetree went along and bought sodas for several hours. While the band was preforming this song came to them.

God of This City
By Bluetree
Performed by Chris Tomlin

Verse 1
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 in this darkness
You’re the hope to the hopeless
You’re the peace to the restless
You are

Bridge
For there is no-one like our God
There is no-one like our God

Chorus 1
Greater things have yet to come

Greater things are still to be done

In this city
Greater things have yet to come

And greater things have still to be done here


Verse 2
You’re the Lord of Creation
The Creator of all things
You’re the King above all Kings
You are
You’re the strength in our weakness
You’re the love to the broken
You’re the joy in the sadness
You are

Bridge
For there is no-one like our God
There is no-one like our God

Chorus 2
Greater things have yet to come

Greater things are still to be done

In this city
Greater things have yet to come

Greater things are still to be done

In this city
Greater things have yet to come

Greater things are still to be done

In this city
Greater things have yet to come

And greater things have still to be done here

  1. This song is a truly powerful song that brought me to Worship our God and give Him this city of Gainesville. Pray with me for the Greater Things to be done!

  2. That’s a beatiful song, and is exactly for the moment, sometimes we can’t do something with the humanity problems ’cause we’re humans but we can pray or sing ti Jesus and maybe by our pray or our songs the Lord can do something to fix the problems.

  3. heard the song for the first time earlier this year on Passion’s God of This City CD, and loved hearing the history behind it. Love the way that it is simply yet profound. Amazing.
