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

Splendor and honor and royal pow’r
are yours by right, O God Most High,
For you created everything that is,
and by your will they were created and have their being;
And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have redeemed for God,
From every family, language, people, and nation,
a royal priesthood to serve our God.
And so, to the One who sits upon the throne,
and to Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, dominion and splendor,
for ever and for evermore.
