Representative Text

1 Worthy, worthy is the Lamb,
Worthy, worthy is the Lamb,
Worthy, worthy is the Lamb,
That was slain.

Glory, hallelujah!
Praise Him, hallelujah!
Glory, hallelujah!
To the Lamb!

2 Savior, let Thy kingdom come!
Now the power of sin consume;
Bring Thy blest millennium,
Holy Lamb. [Refrain]

3 Thus may we each moment feel,
Love Him, serve Him, praise Him still,
Till we all on Zion’s hill
See the Lamb. [Refrain]
