American Idol Winner Kris Allen Sings "God of This City"


“God Of This City,” is a song birthed by Ireland-based modern worship band Bluetree in a brothel in Thailand. An anthem being sung worldwide, “God Of This City” was written by Bluetree during a mission trip and while the band was on stage performing worship songs in the Climax Bar, a club which doubles as a brothel in the Red Light district of Pattaya, Thailand. The song became a message of hope for the people of Pattaya and is now being sung in churches across the world. It was further recorded by Chris Tomlin and became the name and theme for the latest Passion project and world tour.

The acclaimed album, God Of This City, has become one the best selling Christian recordings this year. Watch American Idol Winner Kris Allen sing God of This City.




God of This City

You're the God of this City
You're the King of these people
You're the Lord of this nation
You are

You're the Light in this darkness
You're the Hope to the hopeless
You're the Peace to the restless
You are

There is no one like our God
There is no one like our God

For greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City
Greater thing have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done here

You're the Lord of creation
You're Creator of all things
You're the King above all kings
You are

You're the Strength in the weakness
You're the Love to the broken
You're the Joy in the sadness
You are

For there is no one like our God
There is no one like you God

For greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City
Glory
And grace for you and love for you in this City

For greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City
Greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done here

There is no one like our God
There is no one like our God

Greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done in this City
Greater things have yet to come
And greater things are still to be done here
