"Great Is the Lord" is a popular Christian praise song written in 1982 by Debbie and Michael W. Smith. The couple were at the time active members of Belmont Church on Music Row in Nashville, Tennessee and were seeking to augment the music. Today the song is sung in churches of many denominations and is included in many hymnal supplements.

The inspiration for the lyrics were drawn from Psalm 145:3, "Great is the Lord and most worthy of Praise."
