Tune Information
Name: [Great is the Lord and how great is his kingdom]
Composer: David Lee
Arranger: John Barnard
Key: D Major
Copyright: © 1996 David Lee
Notes: If adding hand claps on the off-beats, at each fourth measure add an extra clap on beat 3. During the interlude, clap on each beat (or even each eighth note) to heighten to the return to the refrain. St. 3 is overtly Christological in its interpretation, making the song particularly appropriate for festivals celebrating Christ’s resurrection, ascension, and/or reign.
