197Revelation 5:11-14CM
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
    Honour and power divine;
And blessings more than we can give
    Be, Lord, for ever Thine.
4  Let all that dwell above the sky,
    And air, and earth, and seas,
Conspire to lift Thy glories high,
    And speak Thine endless praise.
5  The whole creation join in one,
    To bless the sacred name
Of Him that sits upon the throne,
    And to adore the Lamb.
Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
