Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

893. A Song to the Lamb (Dignus es): Canticle 18

1 Splendor and honor and kingly [royal] power
are yours by right, O Lord our God. [God Most High]

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 [royal priesthood] to serve our God.

5 And so, to him [the One] who sits upon the throne,
and to Christ the Lamb,

6 Be worship and praise, dominion and splendor,
for ever and for evermore.
