The Hymnal 1982 S263
A Song to the Lamb
- [splendor and honor and kingly power]
- E. Stanley Roper, 1878-1953
Antiphon: 1. Splendor and honor and kingly power are yours by right, O Lord our God.
2. For you created everything that is, and by your will they were created and have their being;
3. And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain, for with your blood you have redeemed for God,
4. From every family, language, people, and nation, a kingdom of priests to serve our God.
5. And so, to him who sits upon the throne, and to Christ the Lamb,
6. Be worship and praise, dominion and splendor, for ever and for evermore. [Ant.]
