God is Bigger, also known as Bigger than the Boogie Man or God is Bigger than the Boogie Man, is a song from the VeggieTales episode Where's God When I'm S-Scared?.

Bob and Larry sing a song to Junior that God is the biggest thing in the universe, and you do not need to be afraid of monsters. Junior later started to sing it later.

The Boyz in the Sink later did their own version of the song in 2006.

Lyrics

Bob:
You were lying in your bed.
You were feeling kind of sleepy.
But you couldn't close your eyes because the room was getting creepy.

Larry:
Were those eyeballs in the closet?
Was that Godzilla in the hall?

Bob:
There was something big and hairy casting shadows on your wall.
Now your heart is beating like a drum.
Your skin is getting clammy.
There's a hundred tiny monsters jumping right into your jammies!

What are you going to do?

Junior:
I'm going to call the police.

Bob:
No. You don't need to do anything.

Junior:
What? Why?

Bob:
Because... God is bigger than the boogie man.
He's bigger than Godzilla or the monsters on TV.
Oh, God is bigger than the boogie man and He's watching out for you and me.

Junior:
So when I'm lying in my bed
and the furniture starts creeping,
I'll just laugh and say "Hey! Cut that out!"
and get back to my sleeping
'cause I know that God's the biggest,
and He's watching all the while.
So when I get scared, I'll think of Him
and close my eyes and smile!

Bob, Larry, and Junior:
God is bigger than the boogie man.
He's bigger than Godzilla or the monsters on TV.
Oh, God is bigger than the boogie man,
And He's watching out for you and me.

So are you frightened?

Junior:
No, not really!

Monster #2:
Are you worried?

Junior:
Not a bit!
I know whatever's gonna happen, that God can handle it!

Well that's okay, cause now I know that God is taking care of me!

Trivia

Goofs

  • While not a goof, near the end of the song, the head of Junior's dinosaur toy can be seen next to Larry, although it's easy to see why it looks like an off model closet monster.
  • In the remastered version of this song's reprise, Phil Winklestein's voice is heard during the first chorus, although his mouth doesn't move at all during that part.
  • In the album version of this song, Bob and Junior's voices are both lower-pitched during their dialogue.

Real-World References

  • Godzilla (Gojira) is a fictional Japanese monster created by Toho.
