 Re: Has anyone heard this song?

That is a good song, it was written by Rich Mullins who passed away in an auto accident on Sept 19th 1997. You can read more about him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Mullins

His life is a great inspiration!

Here's the full song, what we normally hear is just the chorus of the song:

Verse 1:

When He rolls up His sleeves
He ain't just putting on the ritz
(Our God is an awesome God)
There's thunder in His footsteps
And lightning in His fists
(Our God is an awesome God)
And the Lord wasn't joking when He kicked 'em out of Eden
It wasn't for no reason that He she'd His blood
His return is very close and so you better be believing that

CHORUS:

Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God
Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom, power, and love
Our God is an awesome God

VESRE 2:

And when the sky was starless
In the void of the night
(Our God is an awesome God)
He spoke into the darkness
And created the light
(Our God is an awesome God)
Judgement and wrath He poured out on Sodom
Mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten that
Our God is an awesome God

CHORUS

 Re:

That song has been around since the late 1980's. Rich Mullins (the writer of that song) died in a car accident on September 19, 1997.

So I read in the Wikipedia article. It didn't say anything about his conversion, though. Is there an article on that somewhere?

 Re:

I dont know. I do know some of his theology was not what I personally would endorse. I'm certainly not calling his salvation into question... just saying his personal beliefs were a mix of evangelicalism and catholicism.
