Verse 1:
        E                      A
Empires fall, but You're still standing,
         E                A
You were there from the beginning,
           E                  A                   B
And You'll be there when this life on earth is done.
          E                A
Kings and kingdoms will be shaken,
         E                   A
Shooting stars - each one is fading.
       E                    A                   B
Jesus, You're still shining brighter than the sun.

          C♯m             A
You are higher, You are higher
           E               B
Than all rulers, than all powers.
         C♯m              A            B      E   A   E   A 
Rock of ages, You're the hope that remains. [1.  to Verse 2]
[2nd & 3rd times:]
      C♯m              A
The Beginning, and the Ending,
     E             B
Everlasting, never ending,
C♯m          A            B
Jesus, we're held in Your hands. [2. to Mid section, 3. to Ending]
Verse 2:
You're the treasure that's worth seeking,
In Your presence there is healing.

So be the first one that we run to,
Be the Rock that we hold on to,
Turn our hearts to seek Your kingdom and Your fame.

E/G♯        A             E/B        A
You are the Fortress that will not be shaken.

You are the strength of our hearts.
E/G♯        A                E/B          A

And we will trust in You God.     [to Chorus]

We're held in Your hands.

A              B   
Held in Your hands.

EMPIRES FALL, BUT YOU'RE STILL STANDING,
You were there from the beginning
And You'll be there when this life on earth is done
Kings and kingdoms will be shaken, shooting stars, each one is fading
Jesus You're still shining brighter than the sun

You are higher, You are higher than all rulers, than all powers
Rock of ages You're the hope that remains
The beginning and the ending, everlasting, never ending
Jesus we're held in Your hands

You're the treasure that's worth seeking, in Your presence there is healing
Jesus when You speak You set our hearts aflame
So be the first one that we run to, be the rock that we hold on to
Turn our hearts to seek Your kingdom and Your fame

You are the fortress that will not be shaken, You are the strength of our hearts
You are our rock, You're the hope of this nation, and we will trust in You God
