As I was growing up, my parents taught my siblings and me to pray. Our prayers were simple, the table prayer being: "God is great, God is good, and we thank him for this food. Amen." I remember one time when my much younger sister was saying the prayer, my father said, "I can't hear you." To which she replied, "I wasn't talking to you." There is not a more profound statement than "God is great." There are hundreds of words that describe the word "great." Some of them are: abundant, authority, awesome, boundless, divine, elevated, eminent, ennobled, exalted, excellent, glorified, glorious, immortal, infinite, lofty, magnificent, magnified, majestic, marvelous, mighty, preeminent, regal, sovereign, sublime, superb, superior, vast, wonderful, etc. But our vocabulary could never adequately describe the greatness of our Creator and Redeemer. Only eternity will reveal His glory. The heavens are only His handiwork. "But as it is written Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that love him." (2 Cor 2:9). The glory of heaven is God Himself. God is great, God is good.
