"Onise Iyanu" by Nathaniel Bassey, ft. Micah Stampley



When I recently visited Eastbrook Church in Milwaukee, I heard a song that they've been teaching their congregation. It's entitled "Onise Iyanu" (translated "Awesome Wonder") and, save for its title phrase in Yoruba, the lyrics are in English. It's performed by Nigerian worship leader Nathaniel Bassey and also features the vocals of Micah Stampley (whose song "Be Lifted" I've already promoted). Lyrics are below:


Onise Iyanu You are the God of awesome wonders I've tasted of your power Onise Iyanu You have shown me so much mercy Much more than I deserve

My eyes have seen, my ears have heard The wonders of your praise Creation bows in awe of you And we join to give you praise

The words you speak turns things around Your outstretched arm Has lifted me You took away the chains and colts That held me bound

Omniscient, Omnipotent the one who does great things when I behold the things you do I just can't hold back my praise

The words you speak turns things around Your outstretched arm Has lifted me You took away the chains and colts That held me bound
