- A Song of the Lamb (para.)
1 Come, let us join our cheerful songs with angels round the throne; ten thousand thousand are their tongues, but all their joys are one.
2 “Worthy the Lamb that died,” they cry, “to be exalted thus”; “Worthy the Lamb,” our lips reply, “for he was slain for us.”
3 Jesus is worthy to receive honor and power divine; may blessings, more than we can give, be, Lord, forever thine.
4 The whole creation joins in one, to bless the sacred Name of him that sits upon the throne, and to adore the Lamb.
