THE ROCKS ARE GOING TO CRY OUT IF WE DON'T
Now's the time to raise a song
Hear creation shout loud
We will join our voices to that sound
Stand up, stand up - the time has come

Sing it out, sing an anthem to His name
A generation worshiping unashamed
Giving all for the glory of our King
We will run, we will run after Your heart
We believe You are all that You say You are
Giving all for the glory of our King
The glory of our King

The church is waking up now
To be Your hands and feet upon this earth
Send us in Your power
As we take Heaven to a broken world

We are, we are a chosen people
We are, we are called to follow
We are, we are Your generation
You are, You are the God who saves us
You are, You are the God who sends us
You are, You are the God who's with us
