Representative Text

And I saw a mighty Angel proclaiming with a loud voice
who is worthy to open the Book and to loose the scale thereof
and no man in Heav'n or Earth was able to open the Book neither to look thereon
and I wept and I wept because no man was found worthy to open the Book
neither to look thereon

and one of the elders saith unto me weep not
weep not for behold the lion of the tribe of Judah
and root of David hath prevailed to open the Book
and to loose the seven seals thereof
and I beheld and lo in the midst of the Throne stood a lamb
As it had been slain having seven horns and having seven eyes
which were the seven spirits of God sent forth into all the earth

and when he had taken the Book and the four and twenty
and he came and took the Book out of the hand of him that sat upon the throne
Elders fell down before the Lamb
the Angels were mute and they listned with wonder
the Angels were mute and in tacitness did wonder
the Angels were mute and the saints did shout and sing
worthy the lamb the lamb that was slain
for he hath redeemed us
for he hath redeemed us redeemed us to God
and hast made us Kings and Priest and we shall reign upon the earth

then the whole multitude of Saints and Angels united their Voices
and sang with a shout saying worthy the Lamb
worthy the Lamb the Lamb that was slain
for he is worthy to receive Glory and Honour
Wisdom and Power Hallelujah Amen

holy holy holy Lord God Almighty
just and true are all thy ways
O thou King of Saints Hallelujah
Glory and Honour Hallelujah Amen

worthy the Lamb the lamb that was slain
for he is worthy for he is worthy
to receive Glory and Honour
wisdom and Power Hallelujah
and again they said Hallelujah Hallelujah Amen
Glory and honour Hallelujah Amen and Amen
