“Worthy is the Lamb that was slain.” Rev. 5. 6-12

J. Hart          C.M.

1
We sing thy praise, exalted Lamb,
 Who sitt’st upon thy throne;
 Ten thousand blessings on thy name,
 Who worthy art alone.

2
Thy bruisèd, broken body bore
 Our sins upon the tree;
 And now thou liv’st for evermore,
 And now we live through thee.

3
Poor sinners, sing the Lamb that died;
 What theme can sound so sweet?
 His drooping head, his streaming side,
 His piercèd hands and feet;

4
With all that scene of suffering love
 Which faith presents to view:
 For now he lives and reigns above,
 And lives and reigns for you.

5
[Was ever grace, Lord, rich as thine?
 Can aught be with it named?
 What powerful beams of love divine
 Thy tender heart inflamed!]

6
Ye angels, hymn his glorious name,
 Who loved and conquered thus;
 And we will likewise laud the Lamb,
 For he was slain for us.
