Worthy is The Lamb

Revelation 5:6-14 (NIV)

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits  of God sent out into all the earth. He went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people. And they sang a new song, saying:

“You are worthy to take the scroll
    and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
    and with your blood you purchased for God
    persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
    and they will reign on the earth.”

Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they were saying:

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
    to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
    and honor and glory and praise!”

Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
    be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!”

The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

The name “Lamb of God” is a name that refers to Jesus as the sacrificial offering given on our behalf. Rev. 12:11 tells us that have overcome Satan by the precious blood of the Lamb. In John 1:29, John the Baptist calls Jesus “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” And 1 Peter 1:18-20 tells us that we were redeemed “with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”

The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir sings a beautiful version of the song “Worthy is The Lamb.” I hope that you will take the time to listen to this powerful song and let these angelic voices inspire you as you give praise to the Lamb of God who redeemed us with his blood.
