Awesome God
Author-Rich Mullins

When He rolls up His sleeves He ain't puttin' on the ritz
     Am		D      Em
Our God is an awesome God

There is lightning in His footsteps and thunder in His fists
     Am		D      Em
Our God is an awesome God
      C						 G
The Lord wasn't joking when He kicked 'em out of Eden
    D				 G    D    Em
It wasn't for no reason that He shed His blood
       C					G
His return is very soon so you better be believin'
	  Am	     D	    Em
That our God is an awesome God

Em   C          G
Our God is an awesome God
     D		Em
He reigns from heaven above
       C       G
With wisdom, power and love
     Am		D      Em
Our God is an awesome God!

And when the sky was starless in the void of the night
     Am		D      Em
Our God is an awesome God

He spoke into the darknness and created the light
     Am		D      Em
Our God is an awesome God
C					G
Judgement and wrath He poured out on Sodom
D		    G	   D	   Em
Mercy and grace He gave us at the cross
   C					G
I hope that we have not too quickly forgotten 
	  Am	      D     Em
That our God is an awesome God!

This is very good! I like the piece. It's easy to follow and very pretty!

aRood09 - 2005-03-27

Just would like to say that these chords are much easier for me to play than the other ones listed! I love this song.

jesusfreak_885 - 2005-03-31

Can someone let me know how the strumming goes. I'm new at the guitar and I haven't quite caught on to the strumming. my e-mail is

Does know one else feel that the lyrics in this song excluding the chorus are strange?Like the first line!!!What on earth is that meant to mean?!

glowingkrysis - 2005-12-14

I think that the verses are phenomenal! Have you never heard the original song?

dieter444 - 2006-02-03

i change the D at the end of the chorus to a Bm, it just sounds better.

praise_habit - 2006-02-06

There are two small things, neither of which is entirely necessary:

1) In the Chorus, you are missing a chord:

Em C G D5
Our God is an awesome God...

(D5 is xx0235. Trust me. This sounds very good.)

2) Also in the chorus, when you are playing the Em during the line "from heaven above, it sounds good to play it like this:

1 2 3
From heaven above


Other than that, great job!

lobsterman73 - 2006-03-27

i need the strum pattern too...i'm new to this, and i have no idea how that whole thing works, or how you figure it

MAG1 - 2006-04-19

the strum is very easy to pick up if u listen to the song a few times but if you cant acess the CD then just start strumming and u may fall into a pattern

fineputinpogo - 2007-04-26

the slang expression "putting on the Ritz", means to dress very fashionably...

DFW1 - 2010-11-06

The line should read "There is thunder in His footsteps and lightning in His fists"

steveweber - 2011-09-17

Song looks great, but if you look at any sheet music like from or any place else on the net, the D chords are actually Bm7 chords and the D5 is actually a Dsus. Hope this helps.

0rangebear - 2013-02-26

I think you'll find if you listen carefully to Mullins recording that only the D chords between AM and EM should be BM7 the other remain D
