C.M.
by T. Kelly
1
Behold the Lamb with glory crowned!
 
To Him all power be given;
 
No place too high for Him is found,
 
No place too high in heaven.
Hebrews 2:9; Revelation 4:11; Revelation 5:12
2
He fills the throne—the throne above,
 
He fills it without wrong;
 
The object of His Father's love,
 
Theme of the ransomed's song.
Ephesians 4:10; John 15:9; Revelation 5:6-10
3
Though high yet He accepts the praise
 
His people offer here;
 
The faintest, feeblest cry they raise
 
Will reach the Saviour's ear.
Hebrews 13:15-16; 1 Peter 3:12; Psalm 34:15
4
This song be ours, and this alone,
 
To celebrate the name
 
Of Him that sits upon the throne,
 
And to exalt the Lamb.
Hebrews 8:1
5
To Him whom men despise and slight,
 
To Him be glory given;
 
The crown is His, and His by right
 
The highest place in heaven.
John 15:18,24-25; Hebrew 2:7-9

“And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.” (Revelation 5:6-10)
