WORTHY IS THE LAMB --- Revelations 5:12.

"Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing." --- Revelations 5:12.

O Lord, what mean and slight notions have I often of thy great power! By these I am discouraged, and thou art robbed of thy praise; grant therefore, that though I would always be duly abased and convinced of my vileness, in such a manner as never to ascribe any good to myself, or think worthy of the least thing in the way of merit - for at the best I am an unprofitable servant! - yet thy grace and power may at the same time appear to me abundantly greater than all my sins, so that I may have always encouragement enough to believe in and praise thy holy name.

Come let us join our cheerful song
With angels round the throne;
Ten thousand thousand are their tongues,
But all their joys are one.

"Worthy the Lamb that died," they cry,
"To be exalted thus:"
"Worthy the Lamb," our lips reply,
"For he was slain for us."

Let all that dwell above the sky,
And air, and earth, and seas,
Conspire to lift his glories high
And speak his endless praise.

The whole creation join in one
To bless the sacred name
Of him that sits upon the throne,
And to adore the Lamb.
