30 Day Challenge: Day 1, Favorite Song

Well, my favorite song used to be "Day by Day", and that still is one of my favorite songs, but lately I've found that the song "Oh Great God" has been more of my prayer in life. The words to the song express my desires to live for God, and I also really love the music for it as well.

If you want to listen to the song click here. This particular version is sung by Sovereign Grace Ministries...it's not my favorite version because it's a little more contemporary than I usually listen to, but you can hear how the song sounds by listening to this. I have two favorite versions...one is by Kevin Inafuku, and the other is by the Steve Pettit Evangelistic Team. Both can be found on iTunes actually.

O Great God

O great God of highest heaven
Occupy my lowly heart
Own it all and reign supreme
Conquer every rebel power
Let no vice or sin remain
That resists Your holy war
You have loved and purchased me
Make me Yours forevermore

I was blinded by my sin
Had no ears to hear Your voice
Did not know Your love within
Had no taste for heaven’s joys
Then Your Spirit gave me life
Opened up Your Word to me
Through the gospel of Your Son
Gave me endless hope and peace

Help me now to live a life
That’s dependent on Your grace
Keep my heart and guard my soul
From the evils that I face
You are worthy to be praised
With my every thought and deed
O great God of highest heaven
Glorify Your Name through me

That is such a great song! I really like both Kevin Inafuku's version and the Steve Pettit team's version. The words are my prayer as well. I find myself thinking on the words often throughout the day. The 30 day challenge is a great idea!

I love the pettitt version of this song, too! And the words always strike me to the heart "Own it all and reign supreme, conquer every rebel power!"
Way to start the 30 day thing...I thought about it, too, and didn't do it! It's very neat, though.
