First, the Last, You’re so amazing
Glorious God of everything
You’re far beyond all understanding
Measureless in all Your glory
God You were, You are, You’ll always be

For Your glory, for Your fame
Every knee will bow at the Name
Of King Jesus confessing You as Lord

Even rocks cry out
Even rocks cry out
Even rocks cry out
Your praise
