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!

The Raging (Psalm 2)

I see the nations raging,
With plotting in conspiracy,
In blasphemy engaging,
They meditate on vanity.
They wish to loose the fetters,
And break the bonds to become free,
Yet His laws make all better,
His bonds are reason, gravity.

I see the Son arising!
Be quick to kiss His hands and feet,
And flee from your despising,
That path but leads to your defeat.
Those found in insurrection,
He laughs at them and levels them,
Yet in His resurrection,
He cleanses those who turn to Him.

Loving the Unlovable (I John 4:2-5:2)

To love the Father, love His child,
For if you hate His son in heart,
Then you are shown a loveless liar,
Devoid of God, blind in the dark.
If you hate him whom God appointed,
For you to fellowship on earth,
Then how can you love His Anointed,
The Son invisible to search?

And this is what the Lord’s commanding,
The primest of the christian goals:
To love our neighbor, undemanding,
To make our love for God more whole.
For those who love God do His bidding,
Place Him as Lord over your life.
Surrender to Him unremitting,
To answer but the will of Christ.

For will the Father heed our prayer,
Who hate the brother that He loves?
You are related – neither greater,
And fellow heirs of Jesus’ blood.
Then love on earth his imperfection,
To show your love for God who saved,
Both you and him through resurrection,
When He ascended from the grave.
