Representative Text

1 Worthy of praise is christ our Redeemer,
Worthy of glory, honor and pow'r!
Worthy of all our souls [sic] adoration,
Worthy art Thou! Worthy art Thou!

Worthy of riches, blessings and honor,
Worthy of wisdom, glory and pow'r!
Worthy of earth and heaven's thanksgiving
Worthy art Thou! Worthy art Thou!

Saints of all earth before Him should bow;
Angels in heaven worship Him saying,

Filled with Thy spirit, wisdom and pow'r;
May we ascribe Thee glory and honor,
Worthy art Thou! Worthy art Thou! [Refrain]
