Representative Text

There's no god as great as you, O Lord,
O Lord, my God.
There's no god as great as you, O Lord,
O Lord, my God.
There's no god who works the mighty wonders,
all the wonders that you do.
There's no god who works the mighty wonders,
all the wonders that you do.
Not by our weapons, nor by our power,
but by your Spirit we are led.
Not by our weapons, nor by our power,
but by your Spirit we are led.
The Holy Spirit will move the church,
the Holy Spirit will move the church,
the Holy Spirit will move the church,
for by your Spirit we are led.

Spanish:
No hay dios tan grande como tú,
no lo hay, no lo hay.
No hay dios tan grande como tú,
no lo hay, no lo hay.
No hay dios que pueda hacer las obras
como las que haces tú.
No hay dios que pueda hacer las obras
como las que haces tú.
No es con espada, ni con ejército,
mas con tu Santo Espíritu.
No es con espada, ni con ejército,
mas con tu Santo Espíritu.
Y esta iglesia se moverá,
y esta iglesia se moverá,
y esta iglesia se moverá
con tu Santo Espíritú.

Scripture References:
st. = Ps.77:13-14, Hosea 1:7, Zech. 4:6, Rom. 8:9, 11, 21

One of the marks of any folk song is that its origins cannot be traced. That is certainly the case for this infectiously joyful song.

Liturgical Use:
A chorus to be sung prior to Scripture reading or the sermon; a sung confession of faith or response to preaching; Pentecost season; church festivals and ecumenical services.

--Psalter Hymnal Handbook, 1988
