Christ My Song - 1319
Ye saints, come and join in the praise of the Lamb - Worthy is the Lamb (Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
Worthy is the Lamb.
"Worthy is the Lamb." (Revelation 5,12)
1. Ye saints, come and join in the praise of the Lamb,
the theme inexhausted of angels above:
they dwell with delight on the sound of his name,
and gaze on his glory with rapture and love. PDF - Midi
2. See, see to what honours the Saviour is raised;
he sits on a throne – 'tis the throne of the sky:
come let us adore him who ought to he praised,
and learn with the angels in glory to vie.
3. They sing of the Lamb, who to save us was slain;
we'll take up the theme which we cannot improve;
and "Worthy the Lamb" cry again and again,
till our hearts are inflamed with the fire of his love.
4. All glory to Jesus, who sits on the throne;
let angels and saints spread the sound of his fame:
we bow to the Lamb, who is worthy alone,
and give him the praise that belongs to his name.
Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 192.
