Splendor and honor and kingly power
Are yours by right,
O LORD OUR GOD.
For YOU+ created everything that is,
and by Your+ Will they were created
and have their being.
And Yours+ by right, O LAMB+ that was slain,
for with Your+ Blood
YOU+ have redeemed for GOD,
From every family, language, people, and nation,
a Kingdom of Priests to serve our GOD.
And so , to HIM WHO SITS UPON the Throne,
and to CHRIST the LAMB+
be worship and praise,
dominion and splendor,
for ever and forevermore.
Revelation 4:11; 5: 9-10, 13
