Lyrics Translation

Come and see, how great is our God!
Let’s rejoice in all He has done.
He answers us with mighty power.
There is no one like our God!

“How awesome are your works!” we shout.
“So great is Your power that your enemies bow before you.”
“May the whole earth worship You!”

Come and see, how great is our God!
It is He who won the victory for us.
He is the joy of the nations.
There is no one like our God!
