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.

No hay dios tan grande como t£,
no lo hay, no lo hay.
No hay dios tan grande como t£,
no lo hay, no lo hay.
No hay dios que pueda hacer las obras
como las que haces t£.
No hay dios que pueda hacer las obras
como las que haces t£.
No es con espada, ni con ej‚rcito,
mas con tu Santo Esp¡ritu.
No es con espada, ni con ej‚rcito,
mas con tu Santo Esp¡ritu.
Y esta iglesia se mover ,
y esta iglesia se mover ,
y esta iglesia se mover
con tu Santo Esp¡ritu.

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. 'There's No God as Great" is known all over Central and South America by evangelical Christians who love to sing one song after the other, often stringing them together in medley fashion.

The text confesses the greatness of our Lord; he does "mighty wonders" by his Spirit in leading his people, the church.

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.
