It is part of Vedas - also it is glorification of the cosmic form of Brahman.
The glorification done by Arjuna on seeing Krishna's cosmic form is also about this.
"I see thee without beginning, middle, or end, infinite in power;
with many arms.
The sun and moon are your eyes, the burning fire your face.
The whole universe is heated up with your radiance."
"This space between heaven and earth and all the quarters are filled
with Thee alone. Having seen this, thy marvelous and awful form, the
three worlds are trembling, O high souled Being."
Vedas glorify the same in SrI Rudram.
In the first Anuvaka of Sri Rudram, Rudra is asked to turn away his
Ghora rupa (fierce appearance) and to please his followers. Something
Arjuna too requested.
In the fourth Anuvaka, Rudra is described as the creator and worker
of all kinds. He is the cause of both the significant and minor.
In the fifth Anuvaka, Rudra's existence in running waters is praised
and his five activities are described (creation of the universe,
preservation of it, destruction at the time of Pralaya, bondage in
ignorance and the release of moksha).
In the sixth Anuvaka, Rudra is identified with time (Kalarupa). He
is described as the source of the different worlds, Shrutis (Vedas)
and its essence in Vedanta.
In the eighth Anuvaka Rudra is described as He who illumines other
Gods and confers powers on them. He is seen as ever present in holy
rivers and He who can absolve all sins.
In the ninth Anuvaka the strength and power his attendants is
celebrated because they illumine the gods and the world and control
the forces of the universe. The is the area of activity depicting the
manifestation of the Brahman.
The description of Brahman and His prowess in Sri Rudram shows
why it is recited by all followers of Vedas.
It is about The Supreme Brahman in Cosmic form.
In mundane terminology,
it is about the 'gemba' of the Lord,
His office, or factory, or area of activity, or
whatever one may call.
It is indeed amazing to vision this Brahman
