Not to us, not to us
But to your name be the glory (x 12)

Let us begin, how should we start?
Brightness shining out of the dark
It shines in our heart, providing a spark
His might incites the light to impart
Takes us back to genesis one
Angels clapped and hymns they were sung
Face the facts, he's second to none
In the beginning positioned the sun
Up in the sky hovering high
The light's too bright, cover your eyes
Type of sights that none can devise
His righteous knight is lovely and wise

It's seen in the stars
Seen in the galaxies, Seen in quasars
Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto and Jupiter,
Mercury, Saturn and Venus and mars
Back to the earth, it shows in the trees
Each of the leaves blows in the breeze
Locusts and bees, oceans and seas
All the result of Jehovah's decrees
Observe the way his word creates
Preserves and shapes, determines fates
Reverberates at urgent rates
The earth it shakes with fervent quakes

Imagine it
I can't explain the half of it
Our brains can't even fathom it
And language is inadequate
To characterize the Lord on the throne
With spiritual eyes his story is known
From Him & Through Him & To Him is everything
Surely to God be the glory alone
From Him & Through Him & To Him is everything
Surely to God be the glory alone

Not to us, not to us
But to your name be the glory (x 12)

Let us consider the God who is there
Possessing a glory that's not to be shared
God vs. anyone – not even fair
How could you dare to try to compare
The self-existent, self-sufficient
Omnipotent, Beneficent
Faithful God whose word we can trust
Perfectly holy and perfectly just
His beauty, there's no end to it
Transcendence is infinite
Knowledge and wisdom, intricate
Steadfast love is intimate

We see in his laws, he is the boss
Nothing about him is evil or false
Pure perfection – zero flaws
All of his attributes meet at the cross
The place where Jesus Christ was smashed
To satisfy God's righteous wrath
Rose from the grave on my behalf
Through faith in Christ He lights our path
Makes believers part of his fam
How does a holy God pardon a man?
Perhaps even harder to understand:
From the beginning was part of his plan

Imagine it
I can't explain the half of it
Our brains can't even fathom it
And language is inadequate
To characterize the Lord on the throne
With spiritual eyes his story is known
From Him & Through Him & To Him is everything
Surely to God be the glory alone
From Him & Through Him & To Him is everything
Surely to God be the glory alone

Not to us, not to us
But to your name be the glory (x 12)
