I was introduced to this song a few years ago at a multicultural church I served, as it was both on a recent WOW Gospel album and being requested to be sung at an in-church ladies' retreat. The chord progression for "Awesome" by Charles Jenkins is very simple and the song is a moving and worshipful ballad, naming many attributes of God during the bridge. Lyrics below:


My God is awesome, He can move mountains

Keep me in the valley, hide me from the rain

My God is awesome, heals me when I'm broken

Strength where I've been weakened, forever He will reign

My God is awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome

My God is awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome


My God is awesome, Savior of the whole world

Giver of salvation, by His stripes I am healed

My God is awesome, today I am forgiven His grace is why I'm living, praise His holy name


He's mighty (echo), He's mighty (echo), He's mighty (echo), He's mighty (echo)

Awesome, awesome

He's holy (echo), He's holy (echo), He's holy (echo), He's holy (echo)

Awesome, awesome

He's great (echo), He's great (echo), He's great (echo), He's great (echo)

Awesome, awesome

Deliverer (echo), Deliverer (echo), Deliverer (echo), Deliverer (echo)

Awesome, awesome

Provider (echo), Provider (echo), Provider (echo), Provider (echo)

Awesome, awesome

Protector (echo), Protector (echo), Protector (echo), Protector (echo)

Awesome, awesome
