295. Holy Saviour, We Adore Thee

by Tregelles
Holy Saviour, we adore Thee,
Seated on the throne of God;
Soon in glory, all before Thee
Shall proclaim Thy praise abroad:
"Thou art worthy,"
We were ransomed by Thy blood.
Hebrews 8:1; Revelation 5:9
Saviour, though the world despised Thee,
Though Thou here wast crucified,
Yet the Father's glory raised Thee,
Lord of all creation wide.
"Thou art worthy,"
We shall live, for Thou hast died.
Psalm 22:6; Isaiah 53:3; Matthew 27:31; Romans 6:4; Revelation 4:11; 1 Thessalonians 5:10
And though here on earth rejected,
'Tis but fellowship with Thee;
Should we not with joy expect it—
Here like Thee, our Lord, to be?
"Thou art worthy,"
Thou from earth hast set us free.
John 15:18; Philippians 3:10; 1 John 4:17; Galatians 1:4
Haste the day of Thine appearing
With Thy ransomed saints to reign;
Then shall end all days of mourning,
We shall sing with triumph then.
"Thou art worthy,"
Come, Lord Jesus, come, Amen.
Revelation 20:6; Revelation 21:4; Revelation 22:20
