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!

Sovereignty

The nations rage, and rulers plot their gain,
A certainty of suffering we own,
Since they for pride have all the prophets slain –
They murdered Abel and had Stephen stoned –
And yet we serve a sovereign, loving God,
Who authored history to His plan and will,
The schemes of man are then a mere facade,
Rebellion served Him when it Jesus killed.
There is no rival to His rule imposed,
He does not struggle to sustain His throne.
Creating all, all serve – His friends, His foes,
All accidentally make His glory known.
The nations’ plots and threats, and treachery,
Do but the will that God ordained to be.
