8,7.
by J.N.D., 1835
1
Hark! ten thousand voices crying,
 
"Lamb of God!" with one accord;
 
Thousand thousand saints replying,
 
Wake at once the echoing chord.
Revelation 5:11-14
2
"Praise the Lamb," the chorus waking,
 
All in heaven together throng;
 
Loud and far each tongue partaking
 
Rolls around the endless song.
3
Grateful incense this, ascending
 
Ever to the Father's throne:
 
Every knee to Jesus bending,
 
All the mind in heaven is one.
Psalm 141:2; Romans 14:11
4
All the Father's counsels claiming
 
Equal honors to the Son,
 
All the Son's effulgence beaming,
 
Makes the Father's glory known.
John 5:22-23; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 1:3
5
By the Spirit all pervading,
 
Hosts unnumbered round the Lamb,
 
Crowned with light and joy unfading,
 
Hail Him as the great "I AM."
Revelation 5:11-14
6
Joyful now the new creation
 
Rests in undisturbed repose,
 
Blest in Jesus' full salvation,
 
Sorrow now nor thraldom knows.
Revelation 21:4
7
Hark! the heavenly notes again!
 
Loudly swells the song of praise;
 
Through creation's vault, Amen!
 
Amen! responsive joy doth raise.
Revelation 5:14
“And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands. Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.” (Revelation 5:11-14)
“Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.” (Psalm 141:2)
“For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.” (Romans 14:11)
“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son. That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honoreth not the Son honoreth not the Father which hath sent him.” (John 5:22-23)
“For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” (Colossians 2:9)
“Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.” (Hebrews 1:3)
“And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands. Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.” (Revelation 5:11-14)
