7633. Worthy the Lamb

1. Worthy is the Lamb, the hosts of Heaven sing,
As before the throne they make His praises ring;
Worthy is the Lamb the book to open wide,
Worthy is the Lamb who once was crucified.

Refrain
Oh, this bleeding Lamb, oh, this bleeding Lamb,
Oh, this dying Lamb, He was found worthy;
Oh, this bleeding Lamb, oh, this bleeding Lamb,
Oh, this dying Lamb, He was found worthy.

2. Worthy is the Lamb, who shed His precious blood
To restore a world to happiness and God;
When no eye could pity and no arm could save,
Jesus for our ransom, Himself freely gave.
Refrain

3. Worthy is the Lamb, the bleeding sacrifice
Who for Adam’s race paid such a fearful price;
Worthy is the Lamb, the Paschal Lamb of God,
For the world received Redemption thro’ His blood. [Refrain]

4. Worthy is the Lamb, let men and angels sing,
Worthy is the Lamb, let hallelujahs ring;
And when life is past, upon the golden shore,
Worthy is the Lamb, we’ll shout forevermore. [Refrain]
