Worthy Is the Lamb of God (Hebrews 1:4-14)

Worthy is the Lamb of God!
Worthy to become the Son!
He who cleared sin with His blood,
He is worthy! He alone!

God has called Him as His Son,
Heir of all the Father’s praise.
For which angel was this done?
Christ alone received this place.

Who do all the angels serve,
Seated with God on the throne?
Christ alone their praise deserves,
Christ, whose blood for sin atoned.

He makes angel spirits fly,
Ministers of burning flame.
He is seated, throned on high,
Everlasting is His reign.

Mighty as His creatures are,
Wondrous as every work,
He alone ignites the stars;
He created this great earth.

Never did an angel sit,
With the Father on the throne.
Christ alone was given this,
To the Son all honor shown.

Worthy is the Lamb of God!
Worthy to become the Son!
He who cleared sin with His blood,
He is worthy! He alone!

Luminescent (Hebrews 1:3)

The glory of God is shined out in the Son:
The radiant light of the Magnificent,
The stamp of His substance, both separate but one,
The image and mold, and the Molder who’s sent.

He carries the world in the laws He decreed.
The physical, moral, and mental He made.
The breaking of law which is sin, perfidy,
By Him He made purification – all paid.

He sits now in honor, with God in the heights,
Thus taking up office as ruler of all,
A priest now forever. On Him fix your sights,
Oh! Trust Him and follow with faith when He calls.

The Heavens Are Speaking Aloud (Psalm 19)

The heavens are speaking aloud –
The wind, and the sky, and the cloud –
They’re shouting abroad the glory of God,
Proclaiming the works of His hands.

The languages of every land,
Have heard what creation demands;
Day utters words, and night yet concurs,
They shout in a patchwork of praise.

Each telling mankind of God’s ways:
His Majesty, beauty, and grace.
The galaxies hung, or wild-flowers sprung,
Or pitiful newborn’s first cry.

Oh, help me to never despise,
That voice when I hear it arise,
But let it renew my wonder of You,
And make me to join in its shout!
