“Oh How Good It Is”

Oh How Good It Is

by Keith & Kristen Getty

1.
Oh how good it is
When the family of God
Dwells together in spirit
In faith and unity.
Where the bonds of peace,
Of acceptance and love
Are the fruit of His presence
Here among us.

CHORUS
So with one voice we’ll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we’ll live out His word
Till the whole earth sees
The Redeemer has come
For He dwells in the presence of His people.

2.
Oh how good it is
On this journey we share
To rejoice with the happy
And weep with those who mourn.
For the weak find strength
The afflicted find grace
When we offer the blessing
Of belonging.

CHORUS

3.
Oh how good it is
To embrace His command
To prefer one another
Forgive as He forgives.
When we live as one
We all share in the love
Of the Son with the Father
And the Spirit.

CHORUS

Nothing like cutting up tomatoes, onions, celery, peppers, and herbs for more tomato soup, AGAIN, with my daughter Kaitlyn and singing along to some great gospel music!  This song really spoke to me as we were working in the kitchen.

To quote the Getty’s, ” How good it is to worship with God’s people and

  …with one voice we’ll sing to the Lord
And with one heart we’ll live out His word
Till the whole earth sees
The Redeemer has come
For He dwells in the presence of His people.‘”

May we remember this weekend who created us and who we live for…

Jesus Christ!
