Strong God
Copyright 2006 Andrew Holbrook Tonya Holbrook

They eyes of the Lord, they search
Over the entire earth
To find whose hearts long for Him
To show Himself strong for them
The ears of the Lord, they hear
The cries of the humble prayer
His touch brings healing to us
Revival to the seekers

He’s a strong God, He’s a strong God

The help of the Lord is close
We cling to Him, He upholds
His wings are spread to cover
He comforts like no other
The lips of the Lord, they speak
Love’s promises to the weak
His mighty hand fulfulls each one
Great power makes his will be done

He’s a strong God, He’s a strong God

He’s a strong God, He’s a strong God
He’s a strong God, He’s a strong God
He will show himself strong for you
He’s a strong God
In our weakness, His strength comes through
He’s a strong God
He’s a strong God, He’s a strong God

Strong Lord, strong hand, strong arm, strong in power
Strong Rock, Refuge Habitation and Tower (2x)
He’s a strong God, He’s a strong God, yeah

He’s a strong God, He’s a strong God
He’s a strong God, He’s a strong God, yeah
