In the Presence of an Awesome God

Son-rise over the horizon with orange-haze:   In the Holy of Holies only the priests could go in to offer up a sacrifice for the atonement of sin But the people could not enter For a veil hung down as a wall But when Jesus died that veil opened wide To the presence of an awesome God. Chorus In the presence of an awesome God He is King of Kings and Lord of all Reverently we stand in awe of the presence of an awesome God. If you're facing tough decisions And you don't know what is right I know Jesus is the answer to every question of life And HIs ear is ever listening For the moment that you call every need s supplied; You are never denied In the presence of an awesome God.
This contemporary-Christian-music style song, about Jesus' death tearing the veil of the temple, was written by American evangelical singer-songwriter and composer, Paula Stefanovich.

It was first published in 1999 by Omega Christian Music.
