Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped. (Revelation 5:11-14 ESV)
Hymn ELH 41:1 Lamb of God, Pure and Holy
Lamb of God, pure and holy,
Who on the cross didst suffer,
Ever patient and lowly,
Thyself to scorn did offer.
All sins Thou carried for us,
Else had despair reigned o’er us:
Have mercy on us,
O Jesus! O Jesus!
Jesus, Lamb of God, You laid down Your life for me. Forgive my sins and help me to receive Your forgiveness with joy. Amen.
